Youth Settlement Program
MDSI’S Youth Settlement Program supports young people aged 12 to 24 and their families from migrant, refugee or humanitarian backgrounds, who have migrated to Australia in the past five years.
Our Youth Settlement worker aims to effectively engage with a range of young people from Culturally and Linguistically backgrounds (CALD) who may be at risk of disconnecting from their family, community and vocational activity through the provision of programs and activities which will promote self-esteem and skill development to stabilise their housing, rebuild family relationships and achieve their goals.
This program supports young people to build their capacity, make social connections, acquire skills and knowledge to assist them in their settlement journey by:
- Case worK
- Information sessions
- Youth Group
- Mentoring Support Group
- After school and school holiday activities including excursions, sport and art.
Our service is confidential and free!
Self-referrals and referrals from other services welcome.
Funded by the Department of Social Services under the Families and Communities Program (Settlement Services)
