About

The Belconnen Youth Centre is home to the CRCS Youth Services team, which coordinates a range of activities and services for young people aged 12-25.

The Belconnen Youth Centre is open from Monday to Friday from 10 am-6 pm. Young people can drop by and use the space either to relax, study, or catch up with our team. In the case we are offsite and the youth centre is closed, we usually post an update on our social media and have information posted on our front door. During ACT public school breaks, the Youth Services team operates the Youth School Holiday Program, which provides free activities for young people.

 

COVID-19 update

The Youth Centre is excited to have its doors open again; however, we all have a role to play in responsible social distancing. Young people will be asked to use provided hand sanitiser and to sign in upon entry to the centre. We ask that everyone maintains a 1.5-meter distance and wipes down any used surfaces and equipment with provided cleaners. If you are feeling unwell please stay home.
