CREATE Your Future

The CREATE Your Future (CYF) program supports young people aged 13-25 on their transition from care to independence.
The CYF program consists of a series of workshops which are centred and designed for the 7 life domains, with an additional workshop which focuses on participation.

A core set of competencies are targeted including effective communication, critical thinking, informed and responsible decision making, creative thinking, self-awareness, and interpersonal relationship skills in order to enhance the ability for flexible and positive behaviour that enable young people to live independently. The workshops also enable young people to competently enter a highly competitive job market, manage their finances, and maintain health.

The CYF program is supported by:

CYF Website
For young people leaving care, createyourfuture.org.au is an informative and resourceful rich website that includes links to support services, leaving care plan and covers a wide range of life areas to assist young people transitioning from care. The website focuses on seven key areas; identity, relationships, finding a place to live, health, finances, education and employment and general living skills.

Grant Scheme
The annual Grant Scheme enables young people who are members of clubCREATE to reach their full potential. In the past, grants have been provided for the purchase of laptops, driving lessons, educational resources and accommodation and living expenses.

GYOW Info Kit
Our Go Your Own Way (leaving care) Info Kit is a resource for young people aged 15 and above who are starting to plan for their transition to adulthood and independence.
