Tutors & Ideas

If you have a skill that you would like to share with others we would like to hear from you.

At the Ballan & District Community House we are always looking to expand our programs. Next term, for example, we might run a build your own web site class. Many of our classes are run by skilled volunteers who want to share a talent, hobby or experience. Please phone 5368 1934 today if you would like to help run a group or class.

We also offer pre-accredited classes run by paid tutors. If you have professional skills and have an idea for a future class, we'd like to hear from you.
