Golden Plains Youth Hub has officially opened and is set to support improved health, social, education and employment outcomes for young people.
Located next to Bannockburn YMCA and across from Bannockburn P-12 College, the youth hub has undergone a significant exterior and interior renovation to create a purpose-built, accessible and inclusive youth facility that will help provide stronger connections between the local community and services young people need.
The hub has been a priority project for G21 which has helped to advocate for a revamped space to build a strong, resilient youth culture connected to its community.
After several come and try sessions held last month, the hub will now hold regular activities, and serve as a meeting space for the Youth Activation Committee, the Pride LGBTIQA+ group, and the FReeZa Youth Events Crew.
The youth hub was funded with over $271,000 from the State Government, $100,00 from the Federal Government alongside $100,000 from Bannockburn and District Grants and over $90,000 in-kind contribution from Golden Plains Shire.
