ABOUT US

The Orbost Education Centre Inc. is a community based not-for-profit LearnLocal organisation situated in a lovely part of East Gippsland.

 

The Centre has been in operation since 1976 and is proudly run by a loyal and committed team of volunteers and paid staff.  Our members and clientele covers a diverse range of individuals and organisations exemplifying the richness of the local community.

 

Our programs and activities respond to the needs of the local community, providing an accessible and inclusive agenda which fosters belonging and community spirit, reduces social dislocation and ultimately improves the wellbeing of the community's members.  We deliver short courses throughout the year for people of all ages and backgrounds, promoting learning, connectedness and belonging.

 

The Centre works closely with its community partners and is supported by funding and goodwill from the community, state government and non-government organisations.
