In addition to the standard Youth Training Centre Program, including community service projects and weekend camping, the Centre operated a general purpose farm on its 2700 acre property and supplied farm products to other Departmental institutions. The farm activities and other education and social programs were used to simulate community employment conditions that could provide positive, realistic experiences in the areas of skills training, education and employment.
At any one time, Langi Kal Kal housed between 50 and 120 young people. In its more than 45-year history, a total of about 5500 young people passed through.
In March 1993, when the Langi Kal Kal Youth Training Centre closed, Malmsbury became Victoria's main youth training centre for 17 to 20-year-old people.
