Shout out 


Shout Out is a leadership program for young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds designed to enable them to speak up for themselves and share their experiences and views on a range of topics with a variety of audiences.

It provides an opportunity for inspiring young people to develop skills in public speaking and media relations on topics they feel passionate about.

Why SHOUT out?

A consistent message MYAN WA hears from young people and the general community is the need for opportunities for young people to have a voice and speak for themselves. This is a key objective for MYAN WA – to support young people to tell their stories and promote their views and ideas on issues they care about. MYAN WA wants young people to be understood, accurately represented and influential members of the community.

For events or conferences 


Shout out speeches provide an opportunity for inspiring young people to develop skills in public speaking and media relations on topics they feel passionate about.

While there are many specialist voices willing to talk about youth issues, we think it’s often more insightful and meaningful to hear from the real experts – young people.

If you have an event, conference, workshop or meeting that would be enriched by a multicultural young person speaking passionately about a range of subjects, Shout Out can help.

  • Schools
