We are Streets of the East

About us

Streets of the East is a community that exists to provide access to affordable recreation for young people in the East of Melbourne with a focus on increasing the participation of young people from Refugee, Migrant and indigenous backgrounds.

We strive to do this within a safe, welcoming and nurturing environment which enables each person to experience a sense of belonging and participation in the community.

Every Wednesday night Streets of the East runs a soccer comp, light meal and welcoming space at the Factory Arena (a short walk from Mitcham train station).


Our Values

We thrive on building a community based on mutual respect in which:

  • cultural diversity is celebrated
  • individual strengths are fostered
  • there is consistency in building relationships
  • leadership and participation are encouraged
