We've put together some events, activities, groups and hubs for you - the young members of our community. Youth programs are for young people aged 12 - 25 years old unless stated otherwise. 

Our Youth Hubs, Youth Programs and School Based Programs are safe and inclusive spaces for all young people.

Youth Hubs

We have youth hubs all over the region where you can hang out after school. Our drop-in programs offer a bunch of fun activities like cooking, arts and crafts, board and video games, personal development, and social time with friends in a safe and supportive environment.

All youth hubs are free to attend and we provide light snacks.

The hubs are open during school terms only.

Geelong Youth Hub

A new youth hub in central Geelong will be coming to the corner Gheringhap Street and Transit Place (the old 'Busport' building) in January 2025. 

Detailed design work is now underway after young people in Geelong told us what the space needs in surveys and workshops over the last few months. 

Visit the Geelong Youth Hub have your say page to find out more about the project.
