About the role
YWCA Australia is currently seeking a dedicated Youth Diversion Case Manager to join our Youth Diversion Program. This role is offered on a full time basis on a maximum term contract until 31 December 2019 and is based in our Darwin.
The Youth Diversion Program is a joint collaboration between the Northern Territory Youth Diversion Police Unit and the YWCA in Darwin’s Youth Diversion Program. It is aimed at diverting young people (10-17 years of age) from the justice system, by providing case management and support to assist young people to address the underlying reasons for their offending behaviour.
YWCA Darwin Youth Diversion Program operates within the Restorative Justice framework and the YWCA Darwin’s Principles of Social Justice, Equity and Access. YWCA Darwin Diversion Case Managers provide a multi-disciplinary approach to case management, engaging with relevant stakeholders including other program providers, the young person and their responsible adult and where appropriate in collaboration with Territory Families. Each young person participates in developing their individually tailored support plan, looking at the contributing factors as to why they have committed the offence.
