Let's Talk 2017 Youth Forum

This training explores the essential skills and knowledge required for effective work with young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds.

The training is designed to be applicable across a broad range of sectors government, business, education, health, welfare, justice, and sports and recreation. It is for practitioners such as case managers, youth workers, social workers, volunteers and other front line staff as well as managers who work with young people from any community.

The training draws on CMY’s 25+ years of experience working with young people from diverse migrant and refugee backgrounds. Participants will improve their confidence and capacity to provide a culturally inclusive and responsive service for young people.


What past participants have said:

“The cultural competency training session facilitated by CMY for our volunteers was informative, relevant, thoughtful and engaging. The session was delivered with passion and will really help to ensure that all of our programs remain inclusive and sensitive towards all participants. Our leaders left the session motivated and inspired.

“A really eye opening session that raised valuable questions and left me feeling confident and inspired”

“It was very comprehensive for a one-day training. Suitable for all levels of experience in the services”

“I learned a lot. I feel more confident in my cross-cultural communication skills and their continued development”

“It was so worthwhile… really gave me the time to explore the complexity of some concepts I hadn’t been exposed to”
