Dalby State High School | Youth Insearch

Dalby State High School

At-risk youth in Dalby stand to benefit from a partnership between Youth Insearch and Dalby State High School, established in 2020.

Dalby State High School Principal, Dr Dean Russell welcomes the partnership with Youth Insearch in helping the school reach its goals in supporting students during these unprecedented times. 

“Dalby State High School’s partnership with Youth Insearch, the addition of a social worker and access to Youth Insearch programs will strengthen our goal in achieving positive outcomes for our students and the local community,” Dr Russell said. 

Youth Insearch Social Worker, Khushboo Shah, provides case coordination services to young people attending Dalby State High School, and offers engagement in weekly peer support groups, both virtually and face-to-face, where they are supported by other young people with lived experience of trauma. 


Supporters of the social worker partnerships in Queensland include Hand Heart Pocket the Charity of Freemasons Queensland, the Tenix Foundation and the Tim Fairfax Family Foundation, who will be funding Youth Insearch in its transition to the social worker model and seven new social worker positions in Queensland over the next three years.
