Activate is a program for young people aged 10-17 yrs living in the City of Monash.
The program offers free activities and games in a supportive, supervised and safe environment where young people can have fun, learn skills and make friends.
Activate workers arrange food for the session and young people can help with food preparation if they wish.
Activate workers are all qualified Youth Workers who are able to offer support and someone to talk to if required.
Where does Activate happen?
Activate is run in two locations:
Batesford Community Centre, Corner Batesford Road and Power Avenue, Chadstone.
Southern Community Centre, 27 Rupert Drive, Mulgrave.
When does Activate happen?
Activate Chadstone is open Wednesdays from 4.30pm to 6.30pm; Activate Mulgrave is open Thursdays from 4pm to 6pm (except on public holidays and school holidays). We occasionally have social outings during the school holidays.
Why did it come about?
Monash Youth Services have an ongoing commitment to the Young People in the City of Monash. All projects and activities are developed and coordinated in partnership with the Activate Young Advisors group to make sure their ideas and opinions are included.
Activate Mulgrave is in partnership with South East Commjunity links to better cater the needs of the large Culturally and Linguistically Diverse communities living in Mulgrave and surrounding Monash suburbs.

"It’s nice to go somewhere after school to have fun and hang out with friends without the hassle of organizing somewhere ourselves to have fun"
Some thoughts from the young people after the visit and workshop by the Australian Dodgeball Team:
"I loved it and it was very fun thank you"
"I loved it, it was very exciting that the Australian people came. It was exciting."
