Our purpose is ‘To support homeless and at-risk young people and their children in realising their potential by upholding their dignity and forming genuine partnerships’.
Our vision is ‘New Futures for Young People’. The ultimate goal for BYS is to reduce or eliminate youth homelessness and disadvantage through the following core components:
Health; Housing; Recreation & Social Engagement; Assessment and Referral; Emergency Relief; Young Parents – support & education; Employment; One-on-one advocacy service (case work); Education; and Thought Leadership.
Our values – We believe that organisational values are the qualities that transform an organisation’s mission and vision into reality. In essence, values outline organisational culture and are a major component of organisational performance. We are committed to the following values and work to see these values demonstrated in our day to day behaviour and service delivery:
- Respectful and trusting relationships are fundamental to growth and change.
- Safety and teamwork are essential to achieve our mission.
- Social justice – rights, access, equity and participation – is necessary for young people and their children to meet their needs.
- Partnering with community, government and business will ensure that we pool resources and expertise to cooperatively deliver integrated, holistic and client focused services.
