Investing in Regional Youth Engagement Hubs

As part of our commitment to re-engaging children and young people who have disengaged, we have established youth engagement hubs in each Department of Education region. The hubs complement the role of state schools in providing safe, supportive and inclusive schools for many young Queenslanders.

A local approach

Each Regional Youth Engagement Hub is designed to meet the unique geographic and demographic context of each region. Working in partnership with a range of government agencies, schools, registered training organisations, community-based organisations and other stakeholders, the hubs help young people who have become disengaged to re-engage in education, training or employment.

Practical measures

Through the Regional Youth Engagement Hubs, Regional Directors are responsible for leading  engagement and re-engagement in their region by:

  • tracking and re-engaging children and young people who are disengaged
  • supporting mainstream schools to retain the vast majority of students
  • fostering innovation and good practice
  • allocating discretionary resources
  • building collaborative capability, including with partner agencies
  • supporting evidence-based decision-making.

Case management

The hubs provide case management for those children and young people who need it to be able to re-engage. Case management may include:

  • individualised coaching
  • interim literacy and numeracy programs
  • behaviour management programs
  • counselling
  • connecting students with other government services.
