TAS

MYAN TAS is a network of services and multicultural youth, working to promote the needs and issues of young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds in Tasmania.

Introducing the MYAN TAS Youth Advisory Group


The advisory group held their first meeting/training event for 2017 in October. They explored issues they are passionate about and set the direction and focus of the group for the next six months. The group Group members were selected through an application process and showed outstanding passion and talent for advocacy.  MYAN TAS looks forward to working and learning together over the next 18 months.

Our Voice Matters

IN 2015 MYAN TAS released the Youth Consultation Report - Our Voice Matters.

The report presents findings and recommendations from consultations with more than 200 young people from multicultural backgrounds across Tasmania, and associated service providers.

The report was launched as part of a forum focused on youth settlement issues. Download the report here.

The Migrant Resource Centre Tasmania Inc, through its multicultural youth specialist program, is the host agency for the MYAN TAS.
