What can you expect?
Underground men is an open space for all young men (12- 25 years) to chill, play x-box, make toasties or snacks, work the soccer/basketball courts, or learn some skills, such as IT, coding skills. It’s a time for local young guyz to connect with their friends and supported by the drum youth workers.
The young men are supported to plan new activities and try new things. In the 12 months they have organised outside soccer games, had FIFA competitions and eaten a whole lot of spicy two minute noodles.
Is permission required?
Short answer – yes. Click on this link to complete simple registration form.
ALSO – You can just turn up and meet other young men with a connection to Carlton and Parkville. If you start attending regularly we will ask you to complete a registration form.
Why do you need to complete a registration form?
the drum registration form should have all the dets you need, and also for your parent, guardian or carer. The form outlines what the All Girlz Zone’s activities are, including ours and yours responsibilities. We also need emergency contact details, we usually don’t need them, but just in case we need to contact your parent, guardian or carer in case of an emergency. It is also useful to know – and if we don’t ask – we don’t know about any spiritual, health and wellbeing needs you may have.
If you are under 18 the registration form needs to be signed by your parent, carer or guardian to complete registration form.
If you are over 18 you can sign this for yourself but we’ll still need some emergency contact details.
We absolutely keep your information confidential and we respect your privacy.
If you want to be super organised and bring the registration form on your first visit to the program click here. Otherwise, we can provide a paper copy when you attend the program.
How do I get there?
The community hub is on Lygon Street, between Palmerston Street and Alexander Parade. It is on the Carlton Public Housing Estate, at the bottom of the 480 tower. If we aren’t here come and find us in Neill Street Reserve (close to Rathdowne Street) (just a 2 min walk through the Estate) where we are probably playing ball.
To get to 480 Lygon Street you can catch tram number 1 or 8 and the closest stop is 113 or bus 200 or 200/207 combined.
Can we help you attend?
If you are new to Carlton & Parkville and you want (or you know someone) who might need some encouragement or support to attend, just give us a holla and one of the drum’s friendly team members can help this happen.
