Youth Work at Oxygen Youth Space!


Certificate IV in Youth Work at Oxygen Youth Space, Moreland

New Futures Training has teamed up with Oxygen Youth Space to run one more class in the North, providing accredited training in Youth Work.

Following our partnerships with Darebin Council Youth Services last year who have made the Northland Youth Hub available for a diverse group of 22 students and our partnership with the Northern Community Support Group to assist trainee Imams and Islamic community leaders to better address the increasingly complex needs of young people, our latest collaboration with Oxygen is an exciting and promising initiative to serve and provide greater opportunities to the community.

Enrollments are currently open for people interested in pursuing the course, starting this May.

Classes run 1-day a week (Fridays)
