Residents are encouraged to apply themselves diligently to their studies and to participate in recreation and social activities. The Don Bosco Youth Centre is a 'drop in' recreation centre for young people from Brunswick and surrounding suburbs. A large sporting and recreation complex caters for young people using the centre and representing a wide range of religious and cultural backgrounds. Facilities are also available for school retreats and physical education programs. The COVID-19 restrictions of 2020 meant that the normal activities of the Youth Centre were suspended for most of the year. The Hostel also experienced a decline in the number of residents able to use the facility. The easing of restrictions in 2021 has seen both Centres starting to make a recovery.
