Program Registration | Youth Insearch

Program Registration

Our weekend workshops are a 48-hour retreat commencing at 6pm on a Friday and concluding at 3pm on a Sunday. A typical workshop would consist of up to 50 young people, 8 support adults, and 17 youth and adult Leaders (including trainees). 

Weekend workshops are made up of a number of young people. These include group counselling sessions, fun events and "hassle sessions" wherein young people share and work through difficulties they have experienced with family, abuse, grief and drugs and alcohol with their peers.

The workshops are administrered by extensively trained Youth and Adult Leaders. Youth Leaders facilitate group work on general life skills. Adult Leaders facilitate the group 'hassles sessions". Each workshop is overseen by a clinical psychologist.

The Contact Us form needs to be completed by the referring service provider, support adult or parent/guardian. Alternatively, you can call the office on 02 9659 6122. 



We will send the Pre-Program Referral Form to be completed by the referring service provider, support adult or parent/guardian. 



After the Pre-Program Referral Form is submitted a briefing will be arranged. The briefing will also include linking the young person into a local support group.



Following the briefing a unique registration link will be provided. This link is used to register for future weekend workshops.



To attend a weekend workshop the registration form must be submitted by the registration date, which is two weeks prior to the weekend workshop. The unique registration link provided is specific to individuals, so should not be used to register more than one participant or volunteer.

Weekend Workshop Dates


Please note
Submission of a registration form and payment does not guarantee registration and attendance at the workshop. If we are unable to offer a place at the program we will refund the registration fee to you. Late forms or payments cannot be accepted.



The cost of attendance is well below the actual cost to Youth Insearch and heavily subsidised by the fundraising efforts of the Youth Insearch Foundation. No young person is denied access because they do not have the means to pay. Please call the Youth Insearch office on (02) 9659 6122 to discuss payment support if needed.


Transport to and from the weekend workshops is the responsibility of the referring service provider, support adult or young person. In some areas Youth Insearch may arrange a bus from a central location. 


Payments for attendance must be made before registration closes, which is 2 weeks prior to the weekend workshop. Payments can be made by credit card via the registration form or by calling the office on 02 9659 6122. The office can also provide Youth Insearch bank details for Electronic Funds Transfer upon request.
