Gold Coast Youth Service
The Story of GCYS
Gold Coast Youth Service was formed at a public meeting in February 1980 after two Social Work graduates spent two months living in their cars and conducting a survey as to the need for such a service on the Gold Coast.

Our Vision, Mission & Values
A Gold Coast city where young people are hopeful about their future valued and supported to realise their full potential.
To be a leading non-profit organisation that supports homeless and disadvantaged young people on the Gold Coast, making long lasting and positive changes through:
- Information and support
- housing and tenancy support
- emergency assistance
Social justice is about young people receiving a ‘fair go’ at the opportunities in life. It is about recognising that we are all different and respecting the inclusion and tolerance of all.
The aim of the Gold Coast Youth Service is that young people’s rights are recognised, and that they are consulted in appropriate and meaningful ways and have the opportunity to participate in decision-making that affects their lives.
GCYS supports the Conventions of the rights of the child and keeping makes a commitment to child safety
