Welcome to our first newsletter of 2017!
We hope you all have had a great start to the and are ready for all the exciting news that we have to share with you this year. There are so many events and developments planned that will undoubtedly keep us very occupied, but our young people are always the main focus.
Our programs are constantly improving to keep up with the needs of so many youth who feel disconnected from the wider community.
We are witnessing a huge increase in the yearning for guidance and support towards recovery and self-enrichment.
As many of you may know, Exodus Youth Worx is funded 98% by the community and therefore awareness has always been one of our main goals. You can support us by forwarding this email to friends and family, or by donating using the details below.

ALCOHOL AND OTHER DRUGS COUNSELLING

AOD for those outside of the welfare industry stands for ALCOHOL AND OTHER DRUGS. It’s an acronym that we hear around EYW all day long.

Young people at risk or in crisis can find themselves seeking false relief or a way to cope with trauma via using alcohol or drugs or both. Addiction is one of the major issues we deal with here at EYW.

Over the years of working with young people with AOD issues, we have formulated a good strong program that contains several approached that if used together, have a good chance in turning a young persons direction around. To counteract addiction a community must be created around that young person and its through creation of a new community that brings about healing. EYW strives to be present in the lives of young people struggling with addiction and providing several areas of personal growth such as
  • Professional counselling with a specialist psychologist, which is free and in house at EYW.
  • Individual casework support with a youth worker.
  • Access to support group.
  • Access to EYW social programs.
  • Accommodation.
  • Employment.
  • Access to a paying off fines through the WDO scheme with the Australian government.

It’s a slow road home to recovery and a lot of “community” is needed in many areas. This is what Exodus Youth Worx does best. For more information see our website or call our office on: 9597 4330

TRUE STORY

'Julie' is one of the young mothers whom we help. She came from a mixed marriage with one of her parents suffering from mental health issues. She ran away from home and Exodus Youth Worx was called in and took care of her for over 2 years.

She married young, had a child and unfortunately her marriage turned abusive. She left and had nowhere to go so came back to Exodus Youth Worx. We help her with baby goods, grocery and babysitting so that she can study to finish her diploma.

Single parenting can be hard to walk alone. Its our job to walk with people like 'Julie' in their space giving support and love where needed.

SCREEN PRINTING

The screen printing workshop is intended to give young people an avenue to express themselves visually! A medium that is dying with the mass production of t-shirts being cheaper and more bang-for-buck for large companies - it is rare that we find someone who is able to pass on the art of screen printing.

Chris Sulfa, who is employed by Lonsdale London, Australia - has utilised the Exodus Youth Worx drop in centre to engage with, and pass on the creative skill of Screen printing, and already - our Young People (YP), have create a myriad of designs.

Not only do the young people get a chance to express themselves visually, but Chris is able to work into his classes the process of creating a design, marketing it and how to sell designs.

The whole workshop runs over a 6 week course and young people learn everything from basic Adobe Illustrator skills, to media and marketing and the actual skill of screen printing and costs involved when cost-setting.

Exodus Youth Worx also utilises its young people involved in the program to screen print your shirts, jumpers, cards and more! If you're someone interested in having their design put on something, get in touch with now! We're on all social media and email at info@exodusyouthworx.org.au
