Young people are at the centre of what we do here at CMY. What we learn from them helps us to develop stronger communities, support other service providers, and lead positive change at local, state and national levels. CMY's Annual Report 2016-17 details all the initiatives and programs that CMY has been involved with to support young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds to build better lives in Australia.
“Yet again this year, I was struck by the strength and resilience of the young people we work with,” said CMY CEO Carmel Guerra.
“Having led CMY for close to 30 years, it is always the voices of young people that inspire and motivate me to lead this wonderful organisation.”
“Over the past 12 months, CMY has been delighted to pilot a range of initiatives and approaches that address key gaps in supports available to young people. These initiatives have had many positive outcomes.”
Over the past year, more than 600 volunteers got involved in CMY's programs, giving over 18,000 hours of time, skills and experience, and supporting more than 4,500 young people!
