Cornerstone Youth Services Inc.
young Aboriginal support program (yAsp)
The young Aboriginal support program (yAsp) is for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 12-25 in Northern Tasmania.
We provide individual support to help you create goals and achieve them; these goals are completely up to you. They might include staying at school, accessing health services, improving your relationship with family and friends, worries about school or work, or maintaining community and cultural connections.
We provide education and information programs in schools on topics that are relevant to young people. These programs might be about belonging, identity, connection to your community or about some of the common issues that young people experience like relationships, drug and alcohol, self esteem, sexuality, sexual health, budgeting and money matters.
We also attend community events, so keep an eye out for us!
