Survival Training - Sydney CBD

Youth Action's two day training course for new youth workers, and anyone who wants to update their skills. The course will provide an overview of:

  • 'Youth Work 101' - exploring the purpose and practice of youth work
  • Duty of care & ethics in youth work
  • Engaging young people
  • Understanding and responding to drug and alcohol issues for young people
  • Understanding and responding to mental health issues for young people
  • Managing challenging behaviours
  • Self-care for youth workers.


Survival Training is designed to give an overview of the major elements that make up current youth work. In covering the above topics, we also include elements of youth work philosophies and inclusive practice principles, and encourage participants to reflect on their own practice. The program is a mixture of group activities, discussion and presentations. Survival Training is a fantastic opportunity to meet other youth workers from across NSW.
