Help name your new youth centre

  • A bigger and better youth centre is coming to Pakenham! The new centre will be located in James Street.
  • When it comes to naming the new facility, there are 2 directions to go in - we can either keep the name ‘My Place’, which is already familiar to our community as the name of our current youth centre, or go with a fresh new name for a fresh new building!

Feedback closes: Sunday 18 April 2021

10 lucky randomly selected young people who put forward a suggested name for the new centre will receive a

$30 Teen Gift Card

for taking part.
When you’re thinking of a name for the youth centre, maybe it could reflect how it will be used, who will use it or where it is!
  • Please don’t suggest names that may be considered discriminatory or offensive to others.
  • The name suggestions you make will be shared with Council and then a final decision will be made.
