About Shout Out
Shout Out is an innovative public speakers agency supporting young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds to share their stories and perspectives with a wide range of audiences and help shift public discourse on various issues.
While there are many specialists talking about youth issues, we think it’s more insightful and meaningful to hear from the real experts – young people.
If you have an event, conference, workshop or meeting that would be enriched by a multicultural young person speaking passionately about a range of subjects, Shout Out can help.
Shout Out is delivered by the Centre for Multicultural Youth and is in Melbourne, Victoria.
Why Shout Out?
Young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds have a wealth of perspectives and unique ideas to contribute to Australia’s rich diversity. However their voices are often stereotyped, marginalised or invisible in mainstream culture and this can damage their ability to feel like they belong.
Shout Out is an opportunity for young people to redress the balance and present their stories to audiences who may not usually have the chance to hear them.
