  • In Footscray, also due to generous support and donations, we have set up a multi-service youth centre called Our Place.
  • In Ivanhoe, where we have recently opened a cafe to support the operations of our social enterprises and to provide another youth centre, called Our Place Cafe.

By providing them with support and linking young people into productive activities, mentors and programs, including education, training and employment, Kids Off The Kerb seeks to create exciting and worthwhile enterprises so that young people can achieve a sense of worth, purpose and belonging.
