Engaging CALD Youth in Sports - Training

Event Name Engaging CALD Youth in Sports - Training
Start Date 24th Sep 2018 1:00pm
End Date 24th Sep 2018 5:00pm
Duration 4 hours

One in four Australian young people are from a refugee or migrant background. Their engagement as active citizens in Australian society has significant and long-term benefits for each young person, their families, communities, and a diverse and socially cohesive Australia.

However, young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds often face particular challenges in accessing the support and opportunities they need. Their settlement needs are distinct from adults and they commonly face additional and more complex transitions than their Australian-born counterparts.

The workshop is hosted by Multicultural Youth Tasmania. This workshop is guided by the National Youth Settlement Framework  (the first of its kind in Australia), and will enable participants to respond more effectively to specific needs of young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds.


Migrant Resource Centre Tasmania (MRC) Youth Program Team Leader, the MRC Training Coordinator and young people with a lived experience of migrating to Australia, from the MYAN Tasmania Youth Advisory Group.

The workshop will:

  • Cover the demographics of CALD youth in Tasmania
  • Discuss the humanitarian settlement program in Tasmania
  • Explore cultural identity
  • Introduce the National Youth Settlement Framework
  • Explore experiences of young people in the settlement journey
  • Identify common challenges faced by all young people
  • Improve understanding to facilitate good youth settlement through active citizenship
  • Apply good practice capabilities
  • Provide information on services and resources available in the Tasmanian youth sector

Participants can expect an interactive workshop, with exploration and discussion of case studies, and application of practical guides and resources. Participants will receive a copy of the National Youth Settlement Framework (NYSF) and an attendance certificate.
