MYAN is Australia’s national peak body representing the rights and interests
of young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds
and those who work with them.
WHAT WE DO
We work in partnership with young people, government and civil society to promote the rights and interests of young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds and ensure these are recognised in policy and practice.
We facilitate national connections between young people, academics, policy makers and practitioners, develop expert policy advice, provide youth leadership opportunities, and develop capacity building resources.
Young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds are supported, valued and thriving in Australia.
