Monash Youth Services (MYS) has a funky new home.
You can now find them 200 metres from the Glen Waverley train and bus station. Their office is on Level 1, 2 Euneva Avenue, Glen Waverley.
The new home for MYS is purpose built and includes a youth chill-out space, an outdoor terrace, kitchen, office space and private support and consulting rooms.
Monash Youth Services got design input from young people before the space was built to ensure they created a youth-friendly space that is welcoming and engaging for the young people of Monash.

“It’s nice to go somewhere after school to have fun and hang out with friends without the hassle of organising somewhere ourselves to have fun,” a regular participant says.
