Welcome to Cabarita Youth Service


Girls Space – New Program starts soon!

Our new program is starting on THURSDAY 9th May at Cabarita Beach Sports Club in rear clubhouse (Kids club room- entrance from Kauri Ave side) This FREE program will enable a small group of young women (max 12) to access information, develop skills and form relationships in a safe space.  We aim to support participants to achieve a level of confidence in their own abilities and skills that will help them make appropriate choices for themselves and their future.

Some of the topics covered include body image, self confidence and trust, how your body works, drama and craft, financial well-being, bullying, alternatives to drugs and alcohol and how to thrive as a woman in the 21st century. The program is designed to be flexible, in-part, to allow a focus on the current needs of the group as the course develops.

The course is open to any young women of high school age from the Tweed Shire.  Assistance with transport to and from the venue may be possible and we are happy to discuss this with you or any participants that may be interested and need this support. The young women will be served a nutritious afternoon tea and be provided with all resources for the program.

If you are interested or want more information email Julez Vincent on secretary@cabaritayouthservice.org or call/ message 0459326045

Happy Birthday!!! CYS is Turning 10!!!!


We’re so happy to announce that it’s nearly our 10th B’day!! From humble beginnings CYS has grown into an incredible organisation kicking so many goals for our local community and beyond!! This year has been our biggest yet and our Annual General Meeting just passed, saw us acknowledging just how far we’ve come!! 2018 helped put CYS on track for it’s sustainable future for the youth of Cabarita and it’s our aim to continue Empowering Young People – Connecting Families – Strengthening Communities!!!

The success of the Community Connections program is helping to Up-skill, Qualify and Train Local Youth in a variety of employment opportunities. The youth have been thriving in this program, who might have otherwise been disengaged and sitting on the edges of society. It’s been amazing to watch them become empowered and broaden their horizons!! Our hat goes off to our incredible Youth Worker Chris Hitchcock for the success of this program and his incredible work in our community!!! Thank you to the awesome local Businesses who provided a training experience for the participants, we’re forever grateful!!

Our Holiday Programs have been amazing and watch this space to see what the Summer Program will be offering!! We LOVE our volunteers who help out in these adventures and would love to have some more People on board in these adventures for the years to come.
