Strengthen youth engagement
MYAN WA provides a voice to the unique issues faced by young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds, and ensures that they are integrated into the engagement platforms. We continue to work to strengthen youth engagement in policy making and advocacy. We have led a number of projects that enhance the skills of multicultural youth and amplify their voices and experiences in Australia.
