Make a difference
Engage with young people from all walks of life by building the knowledge required to respond to their needs. You will be equipped with the understanding and skills needed for competent, compassionate, ethical and professional engagement with communities in the developing world.
Learning with purpose
Make a commitment to young people’s health and wellbeing by preparing for a future career in a range of roles. Whether your aim is face-to-face liaison or policy development, you’ll be equipped for a variety of opportunities in community and government agencies.
Gain valuable experience working with young people from diverse backgrounds, in addition to the theoretical insights and practical skills required to deal with the needs, problems and aspirations of young people.
Hands-on and immersive
A specialisation in youth work does more than meet the growing need for youth workers in our communities. You’ll be given the experience you need to make a positive impact for people who need it most. As a youth work student at ACU, you’ll be immersed in a practical, hands-on degree with field placements and industry connections to local youth support services.
