After a year like no-other, the Mondo Lounge Youth Space is opening up its doors again to welcome young people back for face-to-face programming from Wednesday 3 March.

Mount Alexander Shire Council’s Mondo Lounge is a weekly youth space that offers free activities, workshops and training opportunities for young people aged 12–25 years in a safe and supportive environment.

“We are so excited to be able to return to face-to-face programs”, said Jodie Hearn, Council’s Youth Activities Officer.

“It was great to have had an online alternative for our youth space last year, but it’s so much nicer being able to see the young people in person and run hands-on workshops and activities again”.

In order to adhere to COVIDSafe guidelines, Mondo Lounge will be splitting the age groups into two separate sessions.

Mondo Lounge is open from 3.30pm to 6.00pm every Wednesday afternoon during the school term for 12 – 14 year olds, and Friday afternoons for those aged 15 years and over. Both sessions will be held at Castlemaine Community House at 30 Templeton Street, Castlemaine.

“By running Mondo Lounge over two days a week we will be able to provide a safe space to hangout after school, while still social distancing”, said Ms Hearn.

“Splitting the age groups also makes it possible to offer more young people the opportunity to get involved in the activities we offer”.

These activities and workshops include baking, badge-making, a Mario Kart tournament, and a gaming afternoon.
