Gippsland East LLEN is a community managed, not-for-profit regional network in the East Gippsland and Wellington Shires. Our members are passionate about giving our young people a better go. We contribute to the improvement of opportunities for young people by tackling regional issues in the complex process of getting young people into post-school education, training and work by addressing gaps in existing services or pilot self-sustaining new initiatives.
Individual and organisations may apply to be members of the LLEN. No membership fee is required.
We undertake the work of networking, information analysis and exchange, strategic planning, identifying
opportunities and supporting regional initiatives that are beyond the scope or capacity of individual members.
We don’t charge young people or our members any fees or try to sell them anything. Best of all, by working together we know we can help our young people create bright futures and live their best life. That’s our reward.
