Youth Services

The Mish

The Mish Youth Centre is the hub for youth and young adult services at City Mission. The Mish assists young people who may be withdrawn or disengaging socially, with education or employment, between the ages of 13-25. It’s our mission to provide programs that connect young people in community, offer unconventional learning experiences and increase potential for the workforce.

We seek to empower young people with hope for the future; we provide a space that is inclusive and welcoming where young people are valued. Clients of The Mish gain access to programs that provide new experiences and a safe place where positive relationships can be forged.

For additional information contact the Mish Youth Centre on 6335 3004.

Youth Mentoring

Sidewalk Mentoring in Launceston and our mentoring program on the North West Coast provide positive role models to individuals who may require extra support through life’s hurdles. Our mentors create a safe, non-judgemental 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. Mentoring can act as a supplement for individuals receiving other support; therapeutic and civil.

Youth Mentoring
[The Mish] has really boosted my confidence. I was a real hermit crab when I started but it’s been really good.

Success Story

Will’s Story

Will is a beat boxer. He has been part of the music program at the Mish since April 2016 and with the help of Reuben (The Mish Music program facilitator) has made steady progress towards his goal to kick-start his beat boxing career. Will and Reuben have been busking their way towards the purchase of a speaker, enabling him to perform independently. In June, through support from the Mish program, Will was able to attend a gig to see one of his beat boxing heroes, Tom Thum, where he got to have an impromptu jam with his idol. Will’s story is just one of a number of lives that are being positively affected by The Mish's programs through music, art and multimedia platforms.
