Landscape of Support for Youth in Transition
This report provides an overview of examples of good practice local initiatives which assist young people, particularly those at risk of disengagement, into work and study, independence and healthy lifestyles. The report provides 48 good practice examples, covering urban and regional areas and addressing a wide range of youth in transition situations through, for instance, career information and advice, and mentoring. The overall purpose of this report was to build on what is already known about how Australian youth are being assisted in their transitions from school and dependence to independence and satisfying work.
