Catalyst Youth Summit
The Catalyst Youth Summit was a program led by a group of young volunteers aged between 18- 25. MYAN WA was the main guide in helping the organisers deliver this program. The committee was formed in 2015 after a number of it’s members participated at the 2014 FUSE national youth summit held by MYAN Australia.
The aim of the summit was to bring multicultural young people together to talk about the issues that are important to them, to work together to create solutions and to have chance to speak directly to politicians and decision makers about these issues and solutions. As part of the summit attendees also received training on leadership and advocacy as well as opportunity to present and network with Federal and State politicians and key stakeholders.
The summit was held at the Edith Cowan University – Joondalup campus. It was supported and guided by MYAN WA, sponsored by YACWA with additional sponsorship sourced from the Office of Multicultural Interests, the Lotterywest and the Edith Cowan University.
The 2017 summit was also supported by the Local Government Authorities of the City of Bayswater, City of Belmont, City of Canning, City of Cockburn, City of Joondalup and the Shire of Kalamunda.
