Young people in Latrobe Valley will be involved in the design, layout and operation of a new $4.3 million Youth Space in Morwell.
Youth Space will deliver a range of integrated programs, activities and services to connect young people to education, training, employment and broader community life. Young people will also shape the type of programs and services to be delivered.
The Office for Youth in the Department of Health and Human Services is leading the project and will be working with other government departments, the Latrobe Valley Authority, community organisations, local government and young people to ensure the Youth Space meets the needs of all young people in Morwell, including those from diverse backgrounds.
No decisions have been made regarding where Youth Space Morwell will be located or which organisation will operate the space.
Commencing in August 2017, young people and the community will be consulted about the best location for a contemporary, safe and youth-friendly space in Morwell.
Feedback from community organisations working with young people will help ensure this new investment complements and builds on existing activities and services provided in Morwell to support young people.
As this project develops, further information will be made available on this site.
