Underground Men (Carlton)


Underground Men is a space for young men (12 to 25 years old) to chill and connect with one another. Every Wednesday from 4pm – 7pm during the school term, we come together at YMCA Carlton Baths to share food and play board games, PS4, table tennis and other activities. Young men are also supported to plan new activities and in the past have organised soccer tournaments, FIFA competitions and a spicy noodle challenge.

The program is free and facilitated by the drum’s Youth Practitioners.
