Our Youth & Employability Strategy
YES Clunes is a community’s carefully considered response to the aspiration, education and employability needs of our young people. YES Clunes is a three year, multifaceted strategy that Clunes Neighbourhood House hopes to deliver via our existing youth program (Y3370), and across Clunes in collaboration with local youth-involving organisations (ranging from sporting groups to local businesses.
YES Clunes aligns with the Hepburn Shire Council 2016 – 2021 Youth Strategy; and links directly to the Clunes Better Health Project, in collaboration with Hepburn Health.
Currently we are seeking funding for a two day a week youth worker, and a three week annual life skills camp for 17 – 24 year olds.

It comes as no surprise to anyone that employment is an issue in rural Victoria, especially for young people. Developed in partnership with Daylesford Neighbourhood Centre, this report helps all stakeholders understand and explore ways to enhance the employability of our community, in particular our youth.
Christmas is coming again!
We had such a great time last year helping out with the inaugural Christmas in Clunes Festival that we’re doing it again – only even bigger and better. This year there will be a float parade down our main street. Anyone who wants to join in is invited to get building and bring your float to join the parade on December the 1st. We are busily planning and building… there are meetings, lots of laughter, hammering, sawing and sewing – we can’t wait to see what creative concoctions arrive in Fraser Street for the parade. For more information, call us on 5345 5078.
