The Neighbourhood Houses and Learning Centres in Yarra provide a variety of programs and activities specifically for their local communities and are predominantly run and staffed by volunteers.
Programs and activities
They offer services including children and youth programs, art, music, cooking and computer classes, English and other language lessons and community lunches, all at little or no cost.
The houses and centres are places you can go for support, education, social interaction, to learn new skills and to make new friends.
You can also find all kinds of services to help you live more sustainably, from workshops to clothes swaps, to places to drop off your hard-to-recycle items such as phones and batteries.
Support for Neighbourhood Houses and Learning Centres
We support the Yarra Neighbourhood Houses and Learning Centres through an ongoing Neighbourhood House Funding Program, a Memorandum of Understanding and through our Partnership Strategy and Action Plan which outlines the shared values and commitment to supporting the community.
