The Mish Youth Centre

The Mish is City Mission’s youth and young adult service, offering programs for young people who may be withdrawn from peers, family and friends or disengaged from education or employment.

Through mentoring and unconventional learning experiences, The Mish supports young people aged 12-25 years to build confidence and develop important skills to sustain work, education and a healthy lifestyle.

Located in The Ark, Launceston and operating during school terms, we offer a safe, inclusive, welcoming space where everyone is valued.

Mentoring is offered in Launceston. The program provides positive role models to individuals who may require extra support navigating life’s hurdles.

Our mentors create a safe, non-judgmental relationship, assisting young people to work towards their goals and dreams. Mentors typically meet with clients on a weekly basis for about an hour and can organise to meet on-site during school hours.

The Mish Makers program supports young people who want to explore their creative side and learn new skills in a fun and safe environment.

Together with City Mission’s Chaplaincy Service we offer ‘Hangouts’. We open the Ark once a week for youth to come and make new social connections, play games, do challenges and have fun in a safe and welcoming environment. Open to all people from 12 – 25 years old.
