Why did it come about?
Monash Youth Services have an ongoing commitment to the young people in the City of Monash. We acknowledge there is an opportunity within the Middle Years to engage children and support their social and emotional development. Our activities are developed with the input and interests of the children that attend the program
The MYzone program is an adaption of a similar program run by Monash Youth Services called Activate which is for young people aged 10-17 years.
