Young Aboriginal Support Program (YASP)

 

Overview

The Young Aboriginal Support Program (YASP) is for all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 12-25 years in Northern Tasmania. It is a program delivered in partnership between Cornerstone Youth Services and Relationships Australia.

YASP provide individual support to help young people create goals and achieve them. These goals might include staying engaged with school, accessing health services, improving relationships with family and friends, addressing worries about school or work or maintaining community and cultural connections.

YASP also attend community events and provide education and information programs in schools on issues that are relevant to young people. Some of these might be relationships, drug and alcohol, self esteem, sexuality, sexual health, budgeting and money matters.
