Glebe Youth Service receives funding to help keep youth off the streets

Date posted: 4 June 2012

Glebe Youth Service (GYS) has been given a $400,000 grant from the City of Sydney to help provide young people alternatives to hanging out on the streets late at night.

Police had reported youth crime and anti-social behaviour peaked late at night in Glebe, leading GYS staff to identify a need for late-night activities. GYS provides educational programs and employment training, as well as other services for 12 to 24-year-olds.

'It's tremendously important work for the Glebe community,' a council spokesman said. 'Most people who use the centre identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander peoples and live in public housing, some with backgrounds of serious disadvantage. Hanging around on the streets can be the only late night entertainment option for these young people.'
