Expressing God's Love & Presence in Educational Communities

Business Summary
Chaplaincy & Christian Religious Education
About Us

YouthCARE is the trading name of The Churches Commission on Education Inc., established by a broad group of Christian churches in WA in 1972. We provide a broad range of services including school chaplaincy and Christian Religious Education.

At YouthCARE everything we do is about valuing and listening to young people. We want every young person to know that they are unique, gifted and able to achieve their best, now and in the future.

We believe in empowering them so that they can reach their full potential.

Our mission is to express God's love and presence in educational communities throughout Western Australia. This means supporting people unconditionally, listening without judgment and providing the best possible service to improve the lives of young people, their families and their school communities.

Our Three Core Values


We recognise the context in which we exist and accept and honour the diversity of views among our own membership and in the communities we serve.


We reach out to others in need by providing holistic services aimed at inspiring hope.


We serve our members & educational communities, creating partnerships that rely on collaboration and recognise the contribution of others.

Micah 6:8 "What the Lord requires of us is this: Do justice, show mercy and walk humbly."

Member Churches

The Members Church elect representatives to the Board, who in turn, appoints the Chief Executive Officer who is responsible for the day-to-day management and operation of YouthCARE.
