Youth Engagement Service

Do you or your friends or family aged 12-25 years need a bit of help?

The Cooktown District Community Centre’s Youth Engagement Service might be just what you are looking for.

Everyone goes through challenges at times.
CDCC may be able to help with some things straight away, and if we can’t, we can link you in with the best people to support you and assist you to set up these appointments.

This is a free and confidential service.
