CASSA’s Youth Service Philosophy
CASSA acknowledges that some young people from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse backgrounds often face particular challenges that contribute to their sense of marginalization and vulnerability. Our Youth Service aims to contribute to a smoother integration of marginalized young people into Australian society, by ensuring that young people are informed about their rights and are empowered to make their own decisions. Youth service also aims to contribute towards young people’s sense of belonging, enhance their independent living skills and their community participation.
We are committed to offering young people a friendly, efficient, sympathetic, non-discriminatory and respectful service. Our Youth Service values fair, diverse, democratic, confidential and accountable work practices that ensure young people’s voices are heard
