Free summer showbags for young people

Mitchell Youth Services has teamed up with local businesses to offer FREE Summer Showbags for people aged 12 to 24. The contents of these bags will help you rediscover Mitchell, there’s vouchers so you can meet up with friends for a milkshake, and there’s some great ideas for things to do during the holidays.

Our showbags are packed with more than $40 of value but we are giving them away for FREE.

The summer showbags include:

  • Vouchers and discounts for local businesses
  • Mitchell Youth Services merchandise
  • Art activities
  • Vouchers to spend at local cafés
  • Games to play at home, or with friends
  • Fun things to do in Mitchell Shire
  • Information on services available for youth and much more
