Who's It For?
This CHC50421 Diploma of Youth Work mirrors the pivotal role of individuals tasked with shaping and overseeing programs and services catered to young people. These programs, channelled through various agencies, are meticulously crafted to resonate with the social, behavioural, health, welfare, developmental, and protection facets of young lives. While these roles are predominantly anchored in community, governmental, and welfare agencies, their impact reverberates across the entire youth community.
At the heart of a youth worker’s mission lies the commitment to engage directly with children and young adults. Their role is to fortify these young minds, nurturing their skills, fostering positive social interactions, and guiding them towards decisions that harmonise with their best interests. Central to this vocation is the possession of sterling interpersonal abilities, a judicious non-prejudicial outlook, acute sensitivity, adaptability, and the fortitude to remain composed during tense moments.
Our CHC50421 Diploma of Youth Work accentuates the significance of proficient case management, coupled with the art of crafting enriching programs and activities. Given the intense and often challenging nature of the role, we believe learners should bring a reservoir of emotional resilience and maturity to the table.
Potential career outcomes could include:
- Community Development Manager
- Youth Program Manager
- Youth Services Coordinator
- Youth and Family Services Manager
- Youth Housing Support Manager
- Youth Mental Health Manager
- Juvenile Justice Manager

Mental and substance use disorder doesn’t just affect the individual, but also the wider community. As people who care deeply about our fellow humans, we show up in this education sector wholeheartedly, with a desire to create positive and lasting change.
Ours is a relatively new business. We knew that starting a new organisation at this time - came with a responsibility to look beyond “business-as-usual”. That’s why we are using our business to create the kind of positive change that society truly needs.
This goes directly to who we are at Hader and why we exist - we believe in a future where everyone feels included, connected, valued, and belongs.
This belief inspires our mission…through learning, community, and support, we’re here to empower people to help each other on their paths to discovery and transformation.
By focusing our efforts on supporting good mental health and wellbeing – through our people, learners, our industry, and the wider community – we help each other on our paths to self-discovery; together building a connected and inclusive future where we all belong.
Right now, we live in times of crisis, uncertainty and for many, self-doubt. But these times are also filled with great opportunities; to rise to the challenges we face and to demonstrate what human endeavour can achieve, especially when we work together.
This is the kind of stuff that dreams are made of. When we help people take control of their lives, we open the door to self-belief. The magic happens here. It’s where the impossible becomes possible and where people connect to the power of their dreams.
If ever there was a need for people to dream of a better, more connected, and inclusive future, now is that time. If this connects with you then come and join our community of fellow dreamers.
Together, let’s make a difference, today.
