South Sudanese assertive outreach initiative evaluation

Back to Projects

Project date May 14, 2014

Lead agent: YSAS
Partners: Youth research Centre, Centre for Multicultural Youth
Funding body: YSAS

YSAS conducted a project that resulted in a clear articulation of the service model employed by the YSAS Sudanese assertive outreach initiative combined with an investigation of its effectiveness.

The final report documents the projects findings and outlines recommendations regarding enhancement of service provision for this target group and for how YSAS might formalise an approach to engaging emerging refugee communities in the future.

The final report describes:
  • The needs and characteristics of the client group who are currently African young men, mainly from refugee backgrounds
  • The reach of the program
  • How those in the target group use assertive outreach, other YSAS services and the broader service system
  • The impacts and outcomes expected from engagement with assertive outreach and YSAS more generally
  • Interviews with young people who are clients and key stakeholders held to gauge the effectiveness of the program.
