COVID 19 SUPPORT

Supporting young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds during COVID-19

MYAN continues to work to ensure that the safety, rights, and interests of young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds are protected and upheld in the COVID-19 public health crisis.

We are connecting the sector, connecting young people, sharing their experiences, and sharing resources for young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds and those who work with them.

MYAN recently hosted a National Youth Panel on 21 July 2020, led and moderated by young people and young leaders from across Australia from refugee and migrant backgrounds, exploring the new normal during and beyond COVID-19. This was an important opportunity to hear directly from young people themselves about the challenges and solutions to COVID-19.

MYAN has also been convening regular national sector meetings to highlight the impact of COVID-19 on young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds, and identify good practice and innovative solutions.
