STREAT – Youth Programs

STREAT is a hospitality-based social enterprise that provides supported vocational training and holistic personal support to marginalised and disadvantaged young people in Melbourne. STREAT exists to make a difference to young people who face a range of barriers and disadvantage. We aim to provide a sense of connection, safety and belonging to our young people.

Our programs are open to marginalised, socially isolated or disadvantaged young people aged 16 to 24 who are in need of a supportive learning and work experience environment to get ready for work or study. We provide a compassionate and constructive social environment with new peers who are also keen to make positive change in their lives.
