Yarra Plenty Regional Library offers work experience placements to secondary students who are in Year 10 and above. Work Experience placements are generally for one week during school term. YPRL is unable to offer additional work experience and/or volunteer opportunities to any youth under the age of 18 outside of the Year 10 Work Experience program.
