Phoenix Youth Centre is the only youth-specific facility in the City of Maribyrnong. 

Home to Maribyrnong Youth Services, the Phoenix Youth Centre welcomes all young people inclusive of race, disability, gender, age, culture, religion, sexuality or family structure. It is a place where young people can hang out, get involved in fun activities, run their own events, and access support services should they need it. 

Programs and events are run at Phoenix Youth Centre or at outreach locations such as RecWest, Braybrook Community Hub and local schools. All programs and services are for young people aged 12 to 25, who live, work, study or play in the City of Maribyrnong.
