I wish to congratulate the Regional Youth Support Services, or RYSS, on officially launching its new One3One Youth Hub in Gosford recently. This youth hub aims to be a safe learning space where young people aged between 12 and 25 on the coast can receive tailored training and support. This hub is focused on preparing young people to be job ready and gives them opportunities to develop the necessary skills to seek, apply for and obtain jobs. It is also a point of connection for further study or information on career options. The youth hub also runs several other programs to help youth that might not fit the mould in traditional education models and provide them with programs to support them during challenging periods. This youth hub has received a federal government grant for two years, and I look forward to seeing the impact this hub will have in nurturing and strengthening the youth on the Central Coast. A big thankyou and a big congratulations to the CEO, Kim, the board, the staff and the supporters of this phenomenal organisation.
