|Better futures for young people|
The Inner Eastern Local Learning and Employment Network (IELLEN) is a not-for-profit, incorporated organisation, funded by the Victorian Government through the Department of Education and Training.
The IELLEN works to improve education, training and employment options and outcomes for young people, especially for those who live, study or are connected to any of three LGAs: Stonnington, Port Phillip, Boroondara.
