Hub activities and outcomes

The Yarrabilba community hub will be a welcoming and comfortable place for everyone to visit. Activities will focus on:

  • supporting connection
  • learning
  • employment, and
  • innovation.

The hub will work alongside the primary and secondary schools and existing community hubs and spaces already in Yarrabilba to provide more services and supports for the fast-growing Yarrabilba community.

Hub activities

The positive outcomes the hub is aiming to achieve is represented in the Theory of Change diagram (PDF 303 KB).

This Theory of Change:

  • is helping guide the design and the future operation of the hub
  • outlines the change or impact the hub will have to the Yarrabilba community
  • describes how the hub will contribute to a community that is connecting, learning, earning and innovating
  • is divided into activities which will be run at the hub and
  • the user experience.

Together these will result in improved social, education and work outcomes for community members.

Activities

A range of community services will provide guidance and support for the community. There will also be various community events, including:

  • education
  • employment and skills programs
  • courses, and
  • activities for young people and adults to participate in.

User experience

Community members will experience a welcoming and inclusive space with opportunities to connect with other people and take part in programs that meet their needs and interests.

Measurement

Over the medium term we will measure the supports and activities the hub provides to the community. This will allow us to see how it is working towards the overall goal of building a connected community with the support, skills and confidence to thrive.

Hub outcomes

The hub will work towards community outcomes developed by the Institute for Social Science Research at the University of Queensland. You can find more about these outcomes in the Outcomes Framework (PDF 234 KB).

The location of the hub between two new secondary schools is ideal to offer students, their families and the broader community activities supporting learning, earning, innovating and connecting outcomes.

These outcomes include that the hub will:

  • help people feel they are a part of the community
  • encourage lifelong learning
  • enable the community to be work ready with opportunities to engage in meaningful work, and
  • support new ideas and solutions.
