After school fun for young people

Published: 8 January 2023

Cardinia Shire Council has a wide range of group programs available to young people (12–24 years).

These group programs encourage young people in our community to connect with like-minded people of a similar age in a safe and supportive environment.

Council’s Youth Services team delivers these group programs every term of the school year. The Youth Services team has also introduced a brand-new group for young people aged 10 – 12 years. ‘Chillout Fridays’ is an activity-based after-school program designed to encourage young people to make new friends and learn life skills in a fun, safe and supportive environment.

Term 1 programs commence in February and include:

  • Be Ur Self: a weekly safe and inclusive LGBTIQA+ group for young people aged 12 – 17 years.
  • Catch Up: a weekly social and life skills group for young people aged 17 – 24 years.
  • Cardinia Pride: a fortnightly group for 17 – 24-year-olds who are passionate about creating change for the LGBTIQA+ community in Cardinia Shire.
  • Switch: a weekly fun, social group with a variety of activities each week for young people aged 12 – 17 years.

All groups have limited numbers, so book early to avoid disappointment!

To book your places now and for more information about our youth programs and groups, please call the Youth Services team on 1800 496 884 or visit Council’s website at
