Thirroul Youth Drop-in
This is a free after-school program for young people aged 10-16 years based at Thirroul Neighbourhood Centre.

The program runs on Wednesdays from 2.30-5.00pm during school terms only, and is a safe place for young people to socialise and develop new skills.

A healthy afternoon tea is provided at every session. We have a great range of activities including card games, books, a pool table, board games, puzzles, arts and crafts, trivia, bingo, and video games. Throughout the term, we offer various youth-friendly information sessions and workshops.
