Our youth volunteering programs are a great way for young people aged 14-24 to get involved in the community, develop new skills and hang out with a cool group of people! Many students use the programs to contribute to their Duke of Edinburgh Award or CAS service requirements with weekly meetings being held at the Youth Centre.

School Holiday Program
During school holidays we run a recreational program from 9am-5pm for young people in school years 6-9. Everyday is different with activities like ice skating, tree top adventure parks, escape rooms, Luna Park and so much more. The cost is $80 per child per day and bookings are essential. The program is released three weeks before the holidays begin and parents can receive notification of this by joining the parent mailing list. View pictures and find out specific information about the programs here.
Girls’ & Boys’ Night In
Throughout the year we work with young people from the area to run focussed groups or events on topical issues. These initiatives provide young people with the opportunity to socialise with peers, participate in some creative activities and discuss issues relevant to them in a safe environment. Specialist presenters are invited to come along to help facilitate an informed discussion. Topics include challenging stereotypes, taking care of your body, peer pressure and risk taking behaviour.
National Youth Week
National Youth Week is an annual celebration of youth aged 12-25 and each year we run a range of events throughout the week based on the national theme. There are a myriad of ways for young people in Mosman to participate in Youth Week activities and our youth volunteers, along with the Youth Forum, are in change of spearheading the Mosman initiatives.

People with Disability
Mosman Youth welcomes people of all abilities to engage and participate in the programs and events that we offer. We value and operationalise a person-centered approach in our service and we are happy to chat about ways we can modify or adapt our programs to be more inclusive. We hold several events a year that are either on site at our centre, or within the Mosman vicinity (such as at the Art Gallery or the Village Green). We market these through our Facebook and website and offer a range of volunteering programs and activities that are open to all young people who live, work/study or spend time in Mosman. Check out a description of our volunteering programs here.
Mosman Youth Centre is fully wheelchair accessible with entry from the side of the building (laneway entrance off The Crescent next to the carpark). We have an accessible toilet, a large kitchen and plenty of seating on site. There is accessible parking in the parking lots next to the Village Green, accessed from The Crescent. Whilst access to our centre during Drop In is limited to young people aged 12- 18 years, support workers or informal support person/s of all ages who are supporting people with disability to access the centre are welcome at all times.
