My name is Sarah Jane Gilvear and I am the Youth Support Officer.
I work for VPG, a local community organisation that is committed to improving youth transitions. I am attached to Malanda SHS from 8.30am, Tuesday & Thursday.
My role as a Youth Support Officer involves working with young people who are struggling with school due to a variety of personal, social and educational issues. I support young people with information, advocacy, interpersonal skill development and emotional support.
I am a qualified Social Worker and have experience working with young people across schools in Cairns. I love travelling and art, I live on the Tablelands with my young family.
I look forward to meeting Malanda SHS Students & Families throughout 2020.
