Re-Engaging Youth

The Mish

The Mish is a hub for youth and young adult support, at City Mission in Frederick Street, Launceston. 

The Mish supports young people, between 13-25 years of age, to explore new social, education and employment options. It's our mission to connect young people to suitable pathways in the community, learning and life experiences and to prepare them for the workforce. 

Participants have access to mentoring support along with an array of activities and programs including art, culinary, music, media, barista and holiday activities and camps. 

Entry to this service is via referral.

Cape Hope Foundation and Tasmanian Community Fund made significant financial contributions to make The Mish a reality. The launch of the media program 'IT IGNITE' was funded by MyState Foundation and the holiday activities have been assisted by a grant from Cape Hope Foundation.

SMART Recovery is also facilitated by The Mish. The launch of this program was supported by Future2 Foundation.

Youth Mentoring

Youth Mentoring takes place across Northern Tasmania and aims to help young people to understand the reality of their behaviours and daily decisions and equip them to make positive choices.

Mentors aim to help young people identify personal and life-stage goals and support them in ways that will allow them to achieve these goals. This may be to return to mainstream education or pursue a specific career path.
