YMCA Youth Centres such as The Space are a regional level youth facility designed to provide an indoor and outdoor space primarily for young people as well as the broader community. The facility is utilised by young people to socialise in a safe and welcoming environment through structured and unstructured arts, cultural and sporting activities and access to a variety of services and programs.
The centres are an invaluable resource that facilitates long-term benefits to the young people of varying communities. The key to the success of the facilities is the space itself. They function to promote a sense of ownership and freedom of expression for various social and cultural activities, including performance and social spaces for music, dance, drama, life skills, recreation and social interaction.
