If you're 10-25 years of age and live, work or study in the City of Boroondara, we have a range of youth programs you can get involved in.

Our youth programs are a great way to meet like-minded people, make friends, learn new skills and connect with the community.

FReeZA

Learn how to plan, run and take part in music, art and cultural events for young people in supervised and safe venues - that are drug, alcohol and smoke free.

To get involved:

  • Join the FReeZa Committee to help plan events.
  • Attend a FReeZa event and help support our young artists and event organisers. Events include live music and cultural events, like the Boroondara Youth Film Festival and Battle of the Bands, with either booked tickets or tickets-on-the-door options. Check out our youth events and activities for current FReeZa events or visit our FReezA Facebook page.

If you'd like to be part of FReeZa, please fill in our participation form.
