The Drum Yarra

the drum Yarra is thankful for the ongoing support from Yarra city council to help us offer services for young people (aged 12-25 yrs) who live, work, study and play in Richmond and Collingwood. We run several programs across city of Yarra, including Richmond Girls Club, Richmond Mix, Collingwood Youth Drop-In, RYMS and school holiday activities.

We’re grateful to have recently been awarded the Collingwood and Richmond Youth Grant 2020-2023 enabling us to continue and grow our work alongside young people on the Collingwood and Richmond Estates for the next 3 years. Thank you to the local community, City of Yarra and our other funders and partners for believing in our work!
