Maribyrnong Youth Services @ Phoenix Youth Centre

Overview

The Maribyrnong Youth Services team (the Team) is based at Phoenix Youth Centre and we provide services for young people in the City of Maribyrnong.

The 2014-18 Maribyrnong Strategy for Young People and Action Plan is what guides our work in providing high quality, relevant services to young people in the municipality.  You can download a copy of the Strategy and view our annual report cards below.

We are a small dynamic group of industry savvy professionals who are committed to ensuring that young people continue to have a voice throughout Council and we aim to influence policy and decision making to achieve the best possible outcomes for young people.
