Young Aboriginal Support Program (YASP)

The Young Aboriginal Support Program is for all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 12-25 in Northern Tasmania.

There are several ways that we work:
We can provide individual support to help you create goals and achieve them. These goals are completely up to you. They might include staying engaged with school, accessing health services, improving your relationship with family and friends, worries about school or work or maintaining community and cultural connections

We provide education and information programs in the community 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. We also work with members of the Aboriginal community to deliver culturally based programs.

We also attend community events, so keep an eye out for us!
