City of Melbourne is beginning its review of youth services at the City of Melbourne, for programs and services supporting young people aged 12-25 years.


CoM has engaged Nous Group to inform the future strategic direction of youth services offered in Melbourne, with a clearly defined role of council.


It will inform the optimal mix of services, programs, and engagement activities that CoM provides to support young people in the city to thrive.


We will be engaging with young people, families, community, and those working in the youth service sector through the project to ensure the future service model meets their needs.
