AN educational hub in Euroa is the recipient of a $4500 grant committed to helping disengaged youth in North East Victoria.
The Euroa Community Education Centre (ECEC) received the grant as part of the State Government’s Training Delivery Support Grants for Learn Local organisations.
The ECEC will receive eight netbook laptops and an iPad for students at Broadford, who use the educational hub’s services.
ECEC executive officer Sherryn Browne said the hub applied for the funding last month.
“We look after the alternative education programs for a few Broadford students who utilise the ECEC,” she said.
“We’re very happy to receive this funding.”
