What We Do
Mosman Youth Centre is open after school for Drop In on Mondays to Fridays from 3-6pm. Drop In is a welcoming and inclusive space for all high school aged young people to access the variety of resources and activities available at the centre, as well as support and information from our friendly youth workers. A variety of programs including Youth Volunteering opportunities are held at the centre during Drop In hours, and the service facilitates a youth holiday program in the school breaks.

Our youth volunteering programs are a great way for young people aged 14-18 in high school to get involved in the community, develop new skills and hang out with a fun 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 Term Activities
The service offers a variety of programs and activities throughout the school term during Drop In hours at the Youth Centre for high school aged young people. Our regular program includes Monday Munchies, Tuesday Youth Volunteering, Wednesday Green Thumbs Gardening Group, Thursday Curiosity Hub and Friday Dungeons & Dragons Social Group. We also run one-off program series and workshops such as the Aunty Time program, Year 12 & Beyond workshops, mentoring programs and other activities that our young people are specifically interested in or have asked for.

School Holiday Program
During school holidays we run a recreational program for young people in school years 6-12. Every day is different with activities like art workshops, dance workshops, boardgames day, Dungeons & Dragons, movie day and so much more. The program is released three weeks before the holidays begin, and parents can receive notification of this by joining the monthly e-newsletter. Find out specific information about the program and register here.
Throughout the year, the service supports in facilitating a variety of youth-led events held at the Youth Centre, and other community spaces in Mosman. Events are driven by young people through our volunteering programs and direct feedback provided from participants at the Youth Centre. In the past, events have included band and music nights at the Youth Centre, the annual Raise The Youth NSW Youth Week dance party at the Art Gallery Grand Hall, events for Mental Health Month in October, and events that align with other important dates such as R U OK? Day, International Day of People with Disability, Harmony Day and NAIDOC Week.

NSW Youth Week
NSW Youth Week is an annual celebration of youth aged 12-24 and each year we run a range of activities and events throughout the week based on the annual theme. There are a myriad of ways for young people in Mosman to participate in Youth Week activities and our youth volunteers are in charge of spearheading the Mosman initiatives. Youth Week is generally held in April each year - visit the website for the latest information.

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.
