Go Your Own Way Info Kit
Our Go Your Own Way (GYOW) Kit is a resource for young people aged 15 and above who are starting to plan for their transition to adulthood and independence. The kit is filled with resources and information to assist the planning process and provide caseworkers, young people and carers with the information they need to plan for a successful transition. This includes the GYOW workbook which is full of information and useful links. For more information about the GYOW kit please email email@example.com
Want to hear what young people think about the GYOW Kits? Watch our GYOW Kit video showcasing some amazing young people who have transitioned from care talking about their experiences leaving care, and the benefits of CREATE’s GYOW kit.
CREATE Your Future
The CREATE Your Future (CYF) program provides young people aged 15 – 25 with the relevant skills and knowledge to effectively transition from care into independence. The life skills and self and community-awareness required to successfully manage the challenges of everyday life are broad, and translating knowledge and values into abilities that enable young people to excel is the foundation of this program.
The program is supported by a detailed website which contains the information from the GYOW workbook but also stacks more state related information.
