Achievements Report 2019-2020

2020 has been an extraordinary year.

We’ve all faced unprecedented challenges. But there has been an incredible response to these challenges from young people and the sector in diverse and inspiring ways.

Young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds played vital roles in keeping their communities and families safe, connected, and informed, and many shared their expertise and unique perspectives via MYAN’s projects and events. The young people we work with continue to show extraordinary leadership, insight and initiative.

The youth and settlement sectors across Australia also responded tremendously to the challenges of 2020 – with rapid and creative adaptation! Motivated by ensuring that young people could continue to access the support they needed amidst unprecedented disruptions, they came together to support each other and share their practice through MYAN’s national sector meetings, consultations, reports, resource sharing and more.

MYAN is pleased to share with you all our Achievement Reports for 2019-20. This is a snapshot of our work in 2019-2020, including our responses to COVID-19.
