Early intervention
The Youth Venue provides child, youth and family support services to reduce the risk of children and young people entering (or remaining) in the Child Protection and Out-Of-Home Care systems.

The Early Intervention and Placement Prevention program funds several aspects of our service, including advice and referral, assessment and case planning, and skill-focused case work and/or training for youth.

The Early Intervention Programs delivered by staff are designed to provide information, instil confidence and build resilience. These programs can be delivered to a young person or group, and are conducted both at the venue and in school. These programs include (but are not limited to):

Drumbeat
Designed to target young people who are alienated or socially withdrawn, however any young person can benefit from participation in DRUMBEAT. The best groups comprise young people of a similar age but with a range of presenting issues rather than those with difficult behaviours.

Drumbeat is a psycho-educational program that is based on the core principles of social and emotional learning as developed by the Collaborative to Advance Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL).

Love Bites
Educating and informing young people about the differences between a respectful and non-respectful relationship, this program aims to reduce the incidence of relationship violence within the community, both in domestic violence and sexual assault.

RAGE- Renegotiating Angry and Guilty Emotions
Through a six-week program, the young people are taught a variety of anger management strategies – enabling them to identify how to reflect on anger, recognise anger symptoms and recognise the different faces of anger. The program instills skills needed to maintain and control anger in a positive and appropriate manner through relaxation, exercise and incorporating diet for ‘state of mind’ and emotions.

Rock & Water
Designed to promote resilience, this program aims to teach both boys and girls practical anti-bullying strategies, alternatives to aggression (both verbal and physical), responses to fear and doubt, thinking of being in control through grounding, centeredness and mental focus, self-respect, self-control and self-confidence through hands on learning and exercises.
