The ACT Youth Services Program (YSP) was coordinated by the Office for Children, Youth and Family Support and funded a range of community-based services for young people until March 2012.

The program delivered services through youth centres, and a range of youth development and youth support activities. This Project provided an overview of what works for vulnerable young people aged 12-25 years, in order to inform the future direction of the YSP.
