New Youth Room in Seymour

Mitchell Shire Council are making some exciting changes in Seymour with a new Youth Room now open on Tuesdays.

Seymour Youth Room is a fun, safe, inclusive space for young people aged 12 to 18.

Get your body moving with our teen fitness program, hang out, grab a snack, listen to some tunes, challenge your mates or staff to a board game or get creative using our range of art supplies.

The new room will replace Broadford Youth Room’s Tuesday session. This means there is now Youth Room activities in Broadford on Mondays, Seymour on Tuesdays, and Wallan on Wednesday and Thursdays.

Seymour Youth Room is located in the front room at the Seymour Sports and Aquatic Centre, Chittick Park, Pollard Street, Seymour. Drop in from 3.30pm to 5pm, Tuesdays during school terms.

Youth Rooms are run by Mitchell Youth Services and everything is provided free, including snacks.

Comments from Mitchell Shire Mayor

Keeping young people engaged and active is an important part of their development.

The growth of our Shire means there are more young people are looking for safe, inclusive and engaging spaces to hang out with their friends and enjoy different activities.

This new Youth Room serves an important purpose in Seymour and I know it will be an asset to the community.

Cr Bill Chisholm.
