Term Program

Cockburn Youth Centre offers a range of engaging after-school term programs for young people aged 10–17 years.

If playing role-playing games, working on drama productions, music, basketball or connecting with peers is your thing, we have you covered. We even have programs that help you create a resume and identify relevant jobs with our Employ Me program. Need your Learners driving permit? We have it covered with Keys for Life.

No matter what you like doing, we are sure you will find something to get involved in and have fun. Give us a call, email us, drop in or check us out on Facebook or Instagram for more details.
