YOUNG people from the southern end of the Mornington Peninsula will have access to youth support services and programs when the Southern Peninsula Youth Hub opens in 2024.
The $13 million project at Olympic Park, Rosebud is being paid for by Mornington Peninsula Shire Council and state and federal governments.
The council will work with young people and key stakeholders to plan, design, deliver and manage the youth centre, with building expected to start this month, October.
The mayor Cr Anthony Marsh said the hub would meet the current and future needs of young people in the southern peninsula.
He said young people living in the area were accessing services and programs at lower rates than would be expected, and many vulnerable young people were missing out on the services and supports they need.
“Evidence shows an accessible youth-friendly site will deliver the best outcomes for young people and their families. We’re so pleased this one stop youth hub is being built in Rosebud.”
