Since 1987, Byron Youth Service has been the primary provider of youth services in the Byron Shire.
BYS made up of an exceptional team of experienced, passionate and dedicated youth-workers who support young people to meet their life challenges and fulfil their potential.
We are governed by a voluntary Committee of Management, comprising of a range of local people with skills in education, government, community services, business, the creative arts, and youth work.We work in partnership with many members of the community to develop and deliver a dynamic range of programs and services.
BYS operates from the Byron Youth Activity Centre (YAC) in Byron Bay and from The Cottage in Mullumbimby. We run outreach programs throughout the Byron Shire.
