OUR PUBLISHED RESOURCES
Innovation Youth Centre (IYC) strives to be evidence based in its approach towards its practice. We also have a transparent approach on what evidence we base ourselves on as an organisation. Using surveys and statistics sourced from our youth reference group and local census data, we create reports that give clarity on what organisational direction IYC should decide on. For more information on what these reports are, click on them on the right hand side of this page.
Innovation Youth Centre & Melbourne Polytechnic Cert IV Youth Justice Focus Group Crime Awareness Report. This report commissioned with Cert IV Youth Justice students from Melbourne Polytechnic details the crime awareness of the IYC youth reference group and the best practice of crime prevention with young people.
Innovation Youth Centre Youth & Community Consultation Report. This report is IYC's first survey of its Youth Reference Group members detailing common needs for a youth centre.
COVID-19 RESOURCE: THE SURVIVE & THRIVE MANUAL
IYC developed a great survival self-help manual resource to help young people in lockdown for COVID 19 in Melbourne's North.
The manual has directories to other local services, social groups active who are active under COVID-19, contacts to local leaders, & boredom busters. It can be downloaded to a device for offline use.
