The Capital City Local Learning & Employment Network (City LLEN) has been working with local schools and the community to support at risk young people since 2002. The LLEN Network consists of 31 not for profit incorporated associations covering all of Victoria.
Funded by the State Government, we are the LLEN for the City of Melbourne.
As a not for profit incorporated association we represent our members from the education, training, community, government, business and employment sectors to improve the outcomes of young people. We do this by working in partnership to develop new and enhance existing pathways and support for young people residing, studying or visiting the City of Melbourne. We focus our work on the most at risk young people to include strategies that help the homeless, the at risk of homelessness, young people with criminal histories or at risk of interacting with the youth justice system and young people at risk of becoming early school leavers.
An agile organisation we adapt our delivery according to current needs, in 2020/21 we will be empahsising the importance of careers, career planning, senior secondary school transitions and industry engagement.
We are a small organisation seeking to continually improve and look for innovative ways to solve problems that reflect the changing nature of the education and employment sectors facing young people today.
Our board is represented by all these stakeholder groups and is governed by our Association Rules. We are registered with the ACNC.
