For many, the first step to feeling that sense of belonging comes from securing a job. Finding work is often the number one priority for the young people we work with; employment enables them to achieve economic security and contributes to building a positive sense of identity. 

We understand the challenges that young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds face when looking for employment in Australia. We work with young people who are experiencing barriers to finding work – matching them with volunteer mentors who support them to become job-ready, providing links to employment opportunities and workplace experience, and building valuable networks. 

CMY also partners with employers who believe business can be a force for good and who are passionate about developing an inclusive and diverse workforce.
