Each year YouthCARE help thousands of students, staff and family members in Western Australian public school communities by providing an essential social, emotional and mental health support service.
YouthCARE chaplains are there to listen, and provide a supportive place to talk. We offer confidential, non-judgmental pastoral care and programs based on respect, compassion and service. YouthCARE chaplains are trained in pastoral care, with ongoing training opportunities provided to specialise in critical incidences, community members living in isolation and mental health initiatives.
Our aim is to support young people and their communities who may be facing challenging personal and social issues. We listen, understand and refer to extra help, if it’s appropriate.
YouthCARE Chaplains are placed according to an individual schools needs after undergoing a rigorous application process including qualification assessments, interviews, reference checks, internationally recognised vocational psychological screening and a comprehensive 3 day induction training.
