MYAN NYSF helps support good practice with young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds

Multicultural Youth Advocacy Network (MYAN) is the national peak body representing the rights and interests of young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds, and those who work with them.

MYAN first released the National Youth Settlement Framework (NYSF) in 2016 – a guide to support and measure good practice with young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds.

The 2020 edition of NSYF was launched on July 1, 2020 and included updated information, a new section on youth work in Australian, new good practice capabilities and revised tools/resources to support application of the Framework in practice.

On September 23, MYAN is hosting an online event at 11:00am – 12:45pm AEST, where panellists who work with young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds, talk about how they have applied the NYSF into their practice, in order to improve their work with young people.

Andrew Duong, the Media & Communications Officer at Multicultural Youth Advocacy Network said that the event is an opportunity for audiences to learn about how they can use a guide like this in their own work.

“It is going to be an interactive event where people can ask questions to the panel, and the panel will talk about their own experience about using the Framework on the ground,” he said.

The panel consists of individuals who have used the NYSF in their own line of work to support good practice with young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds.

The panellist are;

  • Karen McCulloch, Multicultural Futures Western Australia
  • Jal David, Multicultural Youth Tasmania (MYT)
  • Bonnie Gill, AMEP provider for Melbourne Polytechnic
  • Kenny Duke, Access Community Services Limited in Queensland

 

This is an online panel event that will be open for anyone to join.

“Anyone who would be keen to learn about the Framework and how to implement it is welcomed, we’ve got a lot of people from the sector, from universities, we’ve got the police, but anyone is welcomed,” Andrew said.

The NYSF Panel is a great opportunity to learn from different organisations and ask questions about how you can apply the NYSF in your work.

Registration for the National Youth Settlement Framework (NYSF) Panel’s ‘Applying the NYSF in Practice’ is now open and is free to register. Click HERE to register.
