Multicultural Youth Hub

Northside, Barnardo’s and Multicultural Hub Canberra have long recognised the need for a dedicated Youth Space in Gungahlin. Youth spaces function to promote a sense of ownership and freedom of expression for young people. They house various social and cultural activities, including performance and social spaces for music, life skills, recreation and social interaction. As future leaders of communities, young people must feel connected to community spaces, empowered to develop a strong sense of ownership towards those spaces.

The Gungahlin Youth Space (Gunner’s Place) will function as a space for young people to drop in and hang out, attend dedicated programs, groups and workshops as well as be a safe and confidential space to meet with caseworkers and develop relationships with other young people.  It will also provide a great opportunity for Northside, Barnardo’s and MYH to collaborate with other organisations to deliver programs and services to Gungahlin’s youth.

Pop in during the festival to see what they have on offer, meet some of the team and find out how you can get involved
