"GREATS" Youth Services (GYS) is a core program of MHBAC and provides an impressive range of programs and services for young people aged 10 to 20 years.
As well as operating a drop-in service at the Youth Centre Tuesday through to Saturday, youth services staff deliver specialist programs and workshops such as the Strong Young Women's program "Gin Derta", and Strong Young Men's program "Ngarlapul", which targets disengaged and "at risk" youth. During the dry season, these programs are often delivered "on country" with participation of Maningrida elders. GYS also operates a Youth Diversion Program in partnership with Northern Territory Juvenile Justice Department, and a school holiday program.
