Three partners have come together to create a connection point for community members of Wallan.

The Wallan Future Hub is expected to open its doors by the end of June and will welcome all people in the community to be a part of the activities on offer.

The Wallan Future Hub will provide opportunity for the young people of Wallan in community leadership, mentoring, work experience, volunteering opportunities, and provide pathways to education and training.

The scheme is being funded by the State Government’s Pick My Project initiative as a result of the support from the community.

Community groups ‘Love In Action’, ‘Rivers and Ranges Community Leadership and The Centre’, with the support of the Central Ranges Local Learning and Employment Network and Wallan Secondary College invites the community to help refurbish the building.

In coming months, there will be an opportunity for the young people to co-design spaces in the building as a part of the ‘Block – Northside’ competition.

There will also be a series of working bee days for community members to participate in to assist in transforming the old police station into the Wallan Future Hub.
