What can you expect?
The Young Men’s program targets young men aged 12-25 from the public housing estates and provides space for young men to play sports, create music and connect with their peers. Normally our weekly programs would run face to face but at the moment we are using online platforms to deliver them. Currently we are running a ‘Meet the Artist/Athlete Series’ that connects young men with local talent such as musicians and athletes to provide guidance in particular industries and fields. Furthermore, we run weekly online games nights where the young men can compete with their peers and can win great prizes. For all program info and youth focused opportunities we suggest young people follow our Instagram Pages: @youngmens_thedrum, @thedrum.melb
The Young Men’s team also provides wellbeing check ins and delivers essential/feel good care packages to young men whilst they are in lockdown. We can also link vulnerable families who are in isolation into Drummond Street Services food relief and financial aid program.
Due to the rise of Covid-19 Cases in our communities and City of Melbourne, we may revert to our fun online programs when the situation arises.
