Youth Drop In Hours
Emerge offers a dedicated youth hub & drop in centre that is home to youth focused events, activities & resources for young people aged between 13 - 21.
You can access the hub at 84BB Russell Street (behind Sauce Kitchen in Station Street)
The Hub is a judgement free, safe & supportive environment for youth in the Toowoomba region with the vision of engaging young people in our region off the streets, out of trouble and towards a positive future.
Young people are invited to drop in when the hub is open to chill out, access meals, hygiene items and mentors in local community members or you might like to come along to one of our scheduled youth focused events (just check the timetable before you come along)
Young people are invited & encouraged to host their own events with the Emerge team to ensure the space stays relevant and enjoyable for young people in Toowoomba.
A few things to remember
Everyone is welcome in the Emerge Youth Hub, it's our vision that this space will exist for a very long time but it's important that everyone respect the space to ensure that it does and to make sure everyone stays safe.
Youth - If you are supposed to be in school, we will ask you to check back in with us after school hours. If there is a serious reason why you can't be in school we will help you have a chat with someone who can help.
Adults - If over the age of 18 and attending the hub as a mentor, volunteer or staff member you'll need to hold a valid working with children blue card and fill in a volunteers registration form before you enter the building. We hate paperwork, but it's important that we can guarantee the safety of all the young people that come into the space. You can download a volunteers registration form HERE.
Everyone - The Emerge youth hub is a drug & alcohol free space, we aren't here to nag, but we do ask that nobody attends the space under the influence of drugs & alcohol and that smoking is done outside.
If you have a question about the youth hub or think there is something we should know don't hesitate to get in touch with us via the contact form on the page or by calling Jen Shaw on 0413832568
