Youth programs and groups

  • We have programs and groups to encourage young people (12–24 years) to connect with like-minded people of a similar age in a safe and supportive way. 
  • All activities have limited numbers, so book early to avoid disappointment.
  • Please note that all our youth services activities are fully supervised and drug, alcohol, vape and smoking-free.

All programs are free to attend and run during school term. View school term dates on the Victorian Government's Education and Training website
