We are pleased to advise that work has started on a new venue for young people. The Rockingham Youth Centre is expected to open in March 2021.
Located on MacKinnon Street in Rockingham, the centre will give young people aged 12-24 a place to connect and learn new skills. City Youth Workers and Youth Development Officers will be based at the centre and host forums, skill development sessions and workshops for young people. The centre will provide young people with opportunities in areas that include entrepreneurship, social innovation, life skills, job readiness and leadership skills.
