Victoria leads the way in valuing and promoting multiculturalism as one of our greatest strengths. Yet there is still much to be done, particularly with young people, to ensure they can access all the opportunities Victoria has to offer to reach their full potential.
As we approach the Victorian State Election on 26 November 2022, CMY is calling on all parties to commit to strong policies in the following areas so that young people and their families can strengthen their sense of belonging and proudly contribute to Victoria’s multicultural community.
New investments required
- Multicultural youth employment initiative
- Multicultural youth justice
- Tackling racism in local communities
- Multicultural youth workers
- Strengthening diversity through sports initiatives
- Adolescent family violence
- Multicultural youth mental health
- COVID-19 and disrupted education
CMY programs to be sustained and supported
- CMY Centre of Excellence (CoE) and Digital Centre
- Consolidate the Pasifika young people project (Le Mana Pasifika Project)
- Refugee Education Support
- Regional Presence Project (RPP)
- South Sudanese Community Support Group
- Youth Referral and Independent Person Program
- CMSport (Centre for Multicultural Sport)
- Seat at the Table
Our election platform highlights areas where more must be done so that all young Victorians and their families feel a sense of belonging and can proudly contribute to Victoria’s community.
Interviews with spokespeople are available including CMY Chief Executive Officer Carmel Guerra, staff from existing CMY programs (Le Mana Pasifika Project, the South Sudanese Community Support Group and CMSport), and multicultural youth representatives.
