MYST is first and foremost a team, and the strength our organisation and our ongoing success is wholly attributed to the individuals who makeup that team.

From the members of the Management Committee who wrestle with the tough decisions of strategic direction, to our administrators and our passionate staff who work to support each and every young people day after day; we are proud to be Mountains Youth Services Team.

As a Team we are constantly looking for new and innovative ways to improve the lives of the young people we support.

We understand that good governance and a strong dynamic organisation will create the best possible environment for our staff to work and grow.

We recognise that partnerships are integral if we are to support our clients to achieve the best possible life outcomes.


Partner with us to advocate for young people and to extend the opportunities and choices that are available to them.Damian Cooper, Manager
