More than 45,000 people living in the City of Melbourne – around 30 per cent of our population – are aged between 15 and 25. Young people have a huge stake in our city and a lot to contribute regarding its future.
The City of Melbourne’s Youth Services Program supports young people aged between 12 and 25 who live or study in the municipality. Our services are delivered in Carlton/Parkville, North Melbourne/Kensington and the city centre. They offer a range of support and activities, including study and life skills, recreation activities, case management and counselling.
We want to make sure that the youth services we provide in the future meet the diverse and changing needs of young people who live and study in Melbourne.
Over the last few months, we have been talking to many young people who use our current services, as well as those who haven’t. We are now looking to hear from our broader Melbourne community about what our Youth Services Program should offer and how our programs can be delivered in the best possible way.
