Youth cafés

Our Youth Cafes are for anyone aged 12 to 17 to come and hang out, have dinner, join in regular activities and competitions, and get involved in community projects.

The cafes are free, supervised by youth workers and volunteers, and you can get a taxi home for $2.

Youth cafes temporary closure

As a safety precaution to limit public gatherings and slow the spread of the coronovirus, Eurobodalla Youth Cafes are closed for now.


We are looking into safe alternatives to allow some aspects of the service to continue, possibly through online activities or a mobile service. We will share details when they are available.


Council will continue to monitor advice from government health authorities and we will review our operations in line with that evolving advice.

How we operate

  • We provide a safe, supervised environment.
  • Everyone must sign in when they arrive.
  • We expect young people and their families to follow the Youth Cafe rules.
  • The cafes are for young people, so we do not allow adults on site without approval. This includes parents, older friends or people working for other agencies.
  • Staff are not authorised to keep young people at the Youth Cafe if they don't want to be there, even at the request of parents.
  • Supervision does not extend off-site if young people choose to leave the Youth Cafe.
  • Youth Cafe staff will not get involved in or take responsibility for issues that occur outside of Cafe activities or operation times.
  • For $2, young people can be taxied to their door at the end of the evening.

Volunteer at the Youth Cafes

We ❤️ our volunteers, and the Youth Cafes could not operate without them.
