There are a number of ways you can have your voice heard in our community. CMY, government departments, research bodies and other organisations are regularly seeking young people's feedback on a number of issues.
Check below for opportunities to have your say:
The Support for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) Fathers Project aims to contribute to a reduction in violence against women and their children, by engaging CALD young men and fathers to better understand the importance of their role as, current or future, parents and partners. This is a Department of Social Services funded project lead by the Migration Council of Australia (MCA).
The Centre for Multicultural Youth (CMY) is supporting MCA in this project by facilitating focus group consultations with young men and fathers between the ages of 18 – 30 from CALD backgrounds. These consultations will focus on the factors that contribute to the building and break down of relationships, the impacts of becoming a father and how supports can be improved to help maintain healthy, respectful relationships with women and children.
We would like to invite you to be involved in a group discussion on a range of questions exploring these issues.
Shout Out is an innovative public speakers agency that trains and nurtures young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds to share their experiences and views with a wider audience. While there are many specialist voices willing to talk about youth issues, we think it’s often more insightful and meaningful to hear from the real experts – young people.
