​Youth Support Coordinator

Hi, I'm Yve and I am the YSC here at Cairns SDE.

About my role:  The purpose of my role is to support students who are at risk of disengaging with their educational opportunities.  My position compliments and extends existing programs focussed on student health and wellbeing, engagement and retention, and life skills development.  This may include providing individual support and case management to students to maximise their engagement, or referring students to appropriate agencies and support services that will assist students to overcome barriers to their education.  This achieved through working in collaboration with students, teachers, parents/carers, and when appropriate, external services.  The explicit objective is to increase student participation/attendance and engage parents/carers in their student's learning.

What I bring to the role:  I'm a mature person who has worn many hats, both personally and professionally.  Therefore, I'm confident in my ability to understand the issues confronting students/parents/carers and go about my working in a respectful and genuine way.
