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).
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
