Programs and Events for Young People

Wollongong Youth Centre remains closed until further notice.

We’re making plans for reopening in line with new public health rules that are in place from Monday 11 October, but we won’t be reopening straight away. To keep our community and staff safe, we’re taking a cautious and risk-based approach to put the right measures in place before we reopen.

We’ll update you when we can confirm details for reopening.

Our Youth Services team are available by email or phone on (02) 4227 8222 during staffed hours.


Online programs

We can't bring you in-person programs while stay at home orders are in place. But we're running some free programs online to keep you entertained and connected.

To access to any of these activities, send us a DM on Facebook, or Instagram, email us, or call (02) 4227 8222  between 9am - 5pm Monday to Friday.

We may ask for a school ID or other information to confirm your age and location.
