Wyndham City’s Youth Services team offer free school and community engagements to introduce your group to Youth Services and the programs, support and events we offer.
Suitable for ages 12 – 25 years, we provide engagement sessions through centre tours, lunchtime engagement or attendance of the Street Surfer Bus at your location.
These sessions can be tailored to specific year levels or group of people such as Grade 6’s moving into high school, with delivery in a school setting, community space or at our Youth Resource Centre.
Please Note: These are all face to face engagement, however will be based upon state government and local government direction. If changes occur we will notify you and we can postpone your engagement date.
In a circumstance where we are in an extended lockdown, we can look to make adjustments as necessary such as attending an online assembly or group session.
