Yes we are turning forty! Brisbane Youth Service has been operating in Brisbane, helping vulnerable young people since 1977. Over that time we have helped tens of thousands of young people experiencing difficulties in their lives.
We are very proud of what we have achieved over this time and how we have matured and grown as an organisation. To mark this momentous occasion, we will be holding a celebration in October for all our many friends and supporters, past and present.

We are very proud of our outcomes for young people at BYS. Each year we conduct a survey of young people to see if we are on the right track with our services and responsiveness. This year we conducted 139 surveys (representing approximately 10% of the young people we see each year). The good news was that 93% of young people were very happy with our services and would recommend BYS to other young people. We also asked young people how we could improve.
