Le Mana Pasifika Project

The ‘Le Mana’ (Empower) Pasifika Project is helping to build connected communities and a sense of belonging for Pasifika young people in Victoria.

The Le Mana team supports Pasifika youth in a range of settings, focusing on the South East of Melbourne (Casey & Dandenong) and the city’s West (Wyndham & Brimbank). The project catchment includes young people who live outside the Local Government Areas but who travel into the areas for study, work, play, or connections with family and community.

The Le Mana Pasifika Project is delivered in partnership with local government to help respond to issues facing Pasifika youth and their families.

LeMana Youth Ambassadors Westside Youth Forum from Centre for Multicultural Youth on Vimeo.
