MYAN has released a 2022 Federal Election Policy Platform
Voting is our right, but it is also our duty.
This election resources page has multiple resources for Australian organisations to help you understand the election process and to take action and make a difference. You can find out more about enrolling to vote, the election process and meeting candidates and how you can share what matters to you.
This Election Platform uses the National Youth Settlement Framework as a basis for setting out what the Federal Government can do to enable the effective settlement of young people – by investing in programs and strategies that advance a strong, cohesive multicultural society, with an intentional focus on the experiences and futures of young people. This includes targeted interventions for young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds, with particular attention paid to those facing heightened vulnerabilities including young women, homeless youth, LGBTIQ youth, young people with disabilities, asylum seekers and young people on temporary visas, and regional and rural youth.
This support requires leadership, targeted policy and programming, investments based on sound evidence, and direct engagement with young people and youth services in service planning and delivery
MYAN is calling for targeted attention to policies and strategies that enhance positive settlement outcomes for young people, including through promoting better access to education and employment, providing opportunities for youth participation and leadership, addressing disadvantage, and promoting social cohesion.
