Our Youth Engagement Program

12 Sep 2017

This program is an initiative which actively encourages local youth to come to the centre and simply hang out in a safe and supportive space.

The program centers around a ‘pop-up chill out area’ created once a fortnight which is hosted by two local Youth Workers.

Open to anyone aged 12 – 24 years, the hangout is a safe place for youth to relax and play computer games. The Youth Workers will also be on hand to chat to, offer support and referral to other support services if needed. The program is a partnership with Frankston City Council who already host 6 youth hangout across the shire.
