Young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds have enormous potential, but face a range of particular challenges. Recognising this, MYAN Australia launched the National Youth Settlement Framework in 2016 to facilitate a targeted approach to supporting and measuring good practice with young people in the settlement context.
This webinar discussed the implementation of the Framework, and provided examples of community based initiatives and practical strategies for supporting young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds. Recent findings from Building a New Life in Australia: The Longitudinal Study of Humanitarian Migrants were also presented.
