Our Place

  1. About This Service

    ‘Our Place’ Youth Space provides a safe space for young people in the community to come together & access a variety of services & programs to support them in reaching their potential.

    Our Place exists because Kids Off The Kerb want to connect communities’ together to give at-risk & marginalised young people the support they need to succeed in life & re-engage with their communities.

    Kids Off The Kerb aim is to create a space where young people can develop a sense of pride, belonging & respect. On this foundation they can then build their networks & their future & begin to achieve their own success.

    This environment is created through generous donations from Built & the Property Industry Foundation, to allow us to renovate ‘Our Place’ into a usable space.

    The programs for this space include:

    • A multicultural drop in location where young people can gather & meet people from different walks of life
    • Peer-to-peer education concerning ice & other drugs
    • Peer-to-peer education encompassing life skills & personal development
    • A Young Leaders’ course
    • A Yearn to Give program that gives underprivileged youth opportunities to give to other members of their community
    • A Healthy Food program designed around nutritional education & the exploration of intercultural cuisine
