GET INVOLVED

​Innovation Youth Centre is yet to have a space to host many of the activities we want to have for young people. But if you are a young person aged 12-25 and live, work, or study in council areas like Whittlesea, Mitchell, Hume, Darebin, Banyule, Nillumbik, and Moreland, you can help us work towards getting a space by joining our Youth Reference Team group. To find out more information about the Youth Reference Group, check out this page to find out more.
