MYAN NSW – Working with Young People from Multicultural Backgrounds: National Youth Settlement Framework

December 5, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm


The National Youth Settlement Framework (NYSF) is the first of its kind in Australia and this is an exciting opportunity to learn more about how you can apply it in your organisation or role.

The NYSF is Australia’s first evidence-based framework supporting good practice in youth settlement. A conceptual and practical resource, the NYSF is designed to enable services to respond more effectively to the needs of young people from refugee and migrant backrounds and support their active participation in Australian society.

1 day of interactive professional development, exploring:

  • How practitioners and policy-makers can incorporate the NYSF into their work, including using the NYSF Assessment Tools
  • Factors contributing to good settlement outcomes for young people
  • Good practice in facilitating active citizenship
  • Presentations by young people from refugee and asylum seeker backgrounds

All participants will receive copies of the NYSF, including additional resources and tools. This training is linked to a range of competencies in the VET sector Training Packages for Community Services and Health.
