WELCOME TO YOS INDEPENDENT SCHOOL
YOS Lawnton Campus and YOS Goodna Campus are part of YOS Special Assistance School within The Salvation Army Youth Outreach Service (YOS). YOS operates court support, accommodation, assessment and referral programs for young people 12-25 yrs.
YOS Lawnton and YOS Goodna campuses are about working with young people aged 15-19 who have disengaged from mainstream education due to individual, relational and social factors, to re-commence their education within our school.
YOS Independent School currently offers students years 10, 11 and 12. Our team of teachers and youth workers support young people who are struggling with adversities such as mental and physical health, legal and other educational barriers. Every opportunity for extra assistance they may need to overcome these adversities and build independence is made available to young people.
The staff at YOS Independent School advocate tirelessly for those who may not be aware of their rights in education, or the resources that are available to them. Young people who have missed large portions of school find it difficult to navigate through the job market, Centrelink services, the legal system and so on. Workers at both campuses provide education, training and employment pathways as well as advocating for young people, especially those who do not have the support of an adult in their lives.
The Salvation Army distributes 100 % of all Commonwealth and State education funding to the schools for the benefit of our students and the communities we serve. The funding is worked out for each school at a Commonwealth level in accordance with the Australian Education Act 2013 section 78 4(a) under Division 2 of Part 3.
