 MYAN TAS Youth Employment Consultations 

 


MYAN Australia is preparing a policy paper that will provide a national overview of youth employment, with a specific focus on young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds. To ensure the voices of Tasmanian multicultural youth are represented in the paper, MYAN Tasmania, a program of MRC Tas, held a Youth employment consultation with 25 young people during the Multicultural Youth Tasmania (MYT) weekly drop-in service at MRC Tas.Young people shared their experiences looking for work in Tasmania.

MYAN will share the final report widely in Australia and will work with governement and service providers to improve employment outcomes for young preople from refugee and migrant backgrounds. 

Our Voice Matters

IN 2015 MYAN TAS released the Youth Consultation Report - Our Voice Matters.

The report presents findings and recommendations from consultations with more than 200 young people from multicultural backgrounds across Tasmania, and associated service providers.

The report was launched as part of a forum focused on youth settlement issues. Download the report here.
