Broome Youth and Family Hub – HYPE

Helping Young People Engage (HYPE) is an early intervention community initiative established in Broome in 2003. The program is designed to reduce young people’s presence in public spaces at night, reduce young people’s contact with the juvenile justice system, promote young people’s connection to their community and improve the overall wellbeing of young people.

HYPE operates on Friday and Saturday nights until late, engaging young people who are located on the streets at night during peak times of anti-social behaviour. The program operates out of a bus that patrols public areas of Broome where young people are known to hang out. Staff engage with young people at these sites, develop positive and respectful relationships and make sure that the young people are transported to a safe space. HYPE also supports the Chilling Space program, ensuring that participants are safely transported home from the nights activities.
