Community Support Groups

The Centre for Multicultural Youth (CMY) is the auspice organisation for two Community Support Groups, funded by the Victorian Government. These groups, located in Melton and Dandenong, aim to strengthen youth engagement in South Sudanese communities and to ensure that young people and their families are linked into activities and services in their areas. 

A Community Support Group (CSG) is a coordinated, community-led approach to enhance youth and community engagement and to respond to local community issues and needs. The focus of a CSG is to link people to an integrated range of programs and activities such as education, training, employment pathways, health and human services, sport and recreation and other community activities. A CSG can also implement new programs and activities where community needs are identified.

South Sudanese Community: Upcoming Events and Activities

The CSG will facilitate the participation of South Sudanese young people in the activities that are being organized by the other organizations and Melton City Council through providing transportation, registration and the payment of the participation fee.
