To us the hub means an equal opportunity to education and to the same resources as other teenagers who don't have children.
Build a future you hoped for!
The Young Parents' Hub is replicable model that brings together client-focused, integrated services in a safe space to empower vulnerable families to change the trajectory of their lives through learning, education and employment.
The focus is on developing a dual pathway of learning for vulnerable families and their young children. It is also open to other vulnerable people looking for adult learning opportunities.
To build a sustainable model that maximised its social impact and has the potential to grow.
Participants attribute much of the success of the Hub the culture and environment built around a central cafe and a number of core values;
Providing opportunities to grow
Feels like a home
Socially and culturally non-judgemental
Flexibly meeting needs as they arise
Ensuring broader wellbeing
St Philip’s Christian College DALE Young Parents
We have two campuses located in Newcastle and Wyong, providing flexible learning environments, onsite early learning education for their babies whilst they study, wellbeing support to ensure they are connected with agencies and services that assist with parenting and life issues; ultimately resulting in the successful completion and achievement of their high school certificate and transition into tertiary education.
Early Learning Education
The Crèche within the Young Parents' Hub caters for the children of the students in the DALE Young Parents’ School and V.E.T courses, with every early childhood educator promoting the spiritual, emotional, social, physical, cognitive and language development of all children; so they have every opportunity to reach their full potential.
The Young Parents' Hub is a vibrant, comfortable space with facilities and conference room available for business meetings, training workshops, staff planning days and more.
The Young Parent’s Hub has within, a food bank available for everyone called ‘The Pantry’.
The Pantry provides families in the community with the opportunity to purchase quality, low-cost groceries.
