Tools of Development
Youth participation in an organisation can occur for a variety of reasons—whether for personal development, gaining employable skills or to give back to the community. Regardless of your motivation, identifying the desired outcome from your time with St John and developing a plan to achieve your goals is essential to long-term success.
This document aims to provide guidance on how to take ownership of your participation and development in St John. It also presents strategies and tools that may assist in the implementation of your development goals.

At AYAN, we believe that mental health and wellbeing is an important issue facing young Aussies today. Young people can have difficulty asking for help or finding appropriate information when mental health problems arise. They may not know who to talk to or what services are available. Some young people may not be aware they are experiencing a mental health problem at all. Head Spin is a resource that can assist young people, or people supporting a young person experiencing a mental health problem.
