YAMBI works with young people aged 12 – 21 years across the Moreton Bay regional area. YAMBI works with young people individually or with their family where support is needed. YAMBI can support 8-11 year old children if we are supporting a sibling 12-21 years.
YAMBI works with young people in several ways:
- Providing support and pathways to find the right services to meet your needs.
- Working with you to achieve your goals.
- Working with you when lots of things are going wrong and you need intensive support to work it all out.
- Supporting young people and parents / carers together as families.
- Helping young people and families work through challenges in their relationships.
- Supporting young people and families to find the right services and supports to meet their needs.
YAMBI is there to listen, hear your story and work with you towards your goals in life.

The Youth Sexual Violence and Assault services is an initiative of the Queensland Government to address concerns for young people around sexual violence, abuse and sexually reactive behaviours.
It is a new initiative that has enhanced services to provide more supports. It also included a Youth Connector role to assist with linking young people to the right services for support. The Youth Connector works alongside sexual assault services and early intervention services for young people to receive the support that best meets their needs.
The Youth Connector can:
Provide and establish referral pathways
Provide information and advice around YSVA to build knowledge, awareness and understanding
Work alongside services / agencies to develop and deliver early intervention initiatives around YSVA
Raise awareness of the issue of YSVA
Participate in ongoing networking and evaluation of the YSVA program
To get support for young people to link into services or to learn more about the program, please call Ashleigh or Kim.

KYC project Cyberspace and Me – An anti-bullying & Cyber Safety program funded by Queensland Government Anti-Cyberbullying Taskforce to address the complex and prevalent issue of cyberbullying amongst young people.
Cyberspace & Me was an opportunity for young people to explore their thoughts and experiences of cyberbullying through an online community survey and art programs facilitated by Arts Psychotherapist Ashleigh Black.
Young people were given an opportunity to share their story and/or create works of art to be curated in an e-zine and arts exhibition hosted by KYC in December 2019. The aim is to provide a platform for young people to share their stories and speak out against cyberbullying.
Young people participated in a survey as part of the project to hear their stories and thoughts about how to address this issue. The survey provided an opportunity for youth and family workers to sit alongside young people and empower them to have conversations and explore their experiences of cyberbullying. Responses were used in the e-zine publication and exhibition. Congratulations to all of the young people who participated and thank you for your contribution. We hope that the e-zine will provide support to young people and welcome all to share the zine.
