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.

Local Reference Groups: Expressions of Interest

CMY is now calling for expressions of interest from community members who are interested in being part of the Local Reference Groups being established in Melton or Dandenong.

The Local Reference Groups in each area will guide the CSG’s operations, activities and engagement with local South Sudanese communities.
