Youth Skills (Xtreme Turnabout)

Xtreme Turnabout supports young people who are engaged with Youth Justice Services or Queensland Corrective Services.

No pressure, no must do’s, no obligations or requirements, just lots of help and support!

The program focuses on stabilising the young person’s situation and supporting their transition to training and work, while maintaining an ongoing commitment to judicial service orders. At IMPACT Community Services, this program offers a creative and dynamic approach to intervention, including:

  • Xtreme activity days
  • Learner-driver training
  • Job search assistance
  • Life skills development

Our Youth Worker, Heather, will discuss a range of training options including:

  • Hospitality skills
  • Foundation skills
  • Bar skills
  • Construction skills

We offer personalised case management and tailored training to gain a nationally-recognised qualification, followed by post-participation support.

Our Testimonials

I am so happy

Jessicah Mann Transition to Work client

The TtW program has helped me progress into what I want to do, to practice goal-setting and the incredible amount of support lets me know I’m not in this alone. If I face difficulties, I know that TtW is going to do everything in their power to help me and provide whatever assistance they can. It's been a major stress-reliever for me and has helped me on the right path on where I want to go. I’m so happy that I found TtW.

Thank you!

The TtW team provided me with the information about courses so I did a Certificate lll in aged care/disability. I was able to get a placement and I also did a First Aid course.  I'd like to thank Impact for giving me these opportunities.
