GYS is supported and managed by a volunteer community based Management Committee that provides supervision over the GYS staff and programs.
Goodna Youth Services Inc. was founded in the late 1980s to meet the needs of 'at risk' and homeless young people within the Goodna area. The agency was incorporated in 1992 as Goodna Youth Accommodation Service Inc (GYAS). Since this time the service has expanded and widened its client focus and in 2002 took on its present name of Goodna Youth Services Inc (GYS) to reflect these changes.
