About Us

Youth Services works with young people and their families aged 12-25 who live, work, study or have a significant connection to the municipality.

Youth Service provides an important universal service base for young people. We seek to support the healthy physical, social and emotional development of all young people in our community, through building and enhancing protective factors and working with young people to develop their strengths and skills. 

Youth Services is a generalist youth service, comprising of three teams, Counselling and Support, Engagement and Participation and Community Development.

The team is based at 39a Clow Street, Dandenong.
