Working with CALD Youth training

Held on Tuesday 19 March, 9.30am to 4.30pm, Launceston

One in four Australian young people are from a refugee or migrant background. Their engagement as active citizens in Australian society has significant and long-term benefits for each young person, their families, communities, and a diverse and socially cohesive Australia. However, young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds often face particular challenges in accessing the support and opportunities they need. Their settlement needs are distinct from adults and they commonly face additional and more complex transitions than their Australian-born counterparts. Hosting this workshop is MYAN TAS. This workshop is guided by the National Youth Settlement Framework (NYSF) (the first of its kind in Australia), and will enable participants to respond more effectively to specific needs of young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds.

People working with young people from a refugee or migrant background, including asylum seekers are encouraged to attend this training. It is also appropriate for people working within an education, health or community setting, youth sector and sports and recreation sector.
