MYAN hosts regular online national meetings and youth-led panel events as part of our policy, advocacy, youth leadership and sector capacity building work.
These meetings bring together critical perspectives in policy and practice with and for young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds across Australia – settlement and youth service providers, young people, academics, policy makers, government and civil society.
They are important opportunities for national and cross-sector collaboration, sharing research initiatives and good practice, highlighting issues of concern and gaps in policy and service delivery and listening to the voices of young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds in Australia.
National Meeting on Employment and Job Security
We want to hear from you in the sector about the impact of insecure work on young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds.
This meeting will inform MYAN’s submission to the Select Committee on Job Security, a committee established to inquire into and report on: the impact of insecure or precarious employment on the economy, wages, social cohesion and workplace rights and conditions.
MYAN welcomes your valuable input and looks forward to engaging with you on this important topic.
