Monthly Social Nights are hosted in our Green Room at Carlton Baths on the first Monday of every month, from 6:00pm – 9:00pm.
The events are designed for people experiencing hardship or disadvantage to come together and enjoy the company of others in a safe space, whilst enjoying a meal and shower if needed. The first event was held in July 2022, attracting a range of attendees from the City of Melbourne community who enjoyed the finger food, snacks, soft drinks, tea, coffee and biscuits on offer.
The Monthly Social Nights involve board games and a feature movie on the big screen, providing attendees with a great opportunity to socialise and make new friends from the community.

YMCA volunteer and event host, ‘Disco’ Dave looks forward to future Monthly Social Nights and thinks the events will only go from strength to strength. “Everyone was so pumped up after the first night, and they can’t wait for the next one”, Dave said.
“It was great to see some new faces, as well as the regulars from the Y Streetball family, that’s what it’s all about”, he concluded.
