Young migrants and refugees can face a range of challenges and may need support to improve their social, educational and economic participation.
Youth Hubs assist young migrants, aged 12 to 21 years, to prepare for employment and training. This supports their social integration and participation.
Youth Hubs leverage off existing programs by referring participants to community programs and services. This improves their access to and engagement with existing Commonwealth, state and territory and local government services.
Youth Hubs also offer some services to non-youth clients, such as families or communities of young people, including employment information and advice.
Youth Hubs are funded to 30 June 2022.
Locations and providers
Youth Hubs are delivered by three providers in targeted locations with high social disadvantage and high migrant populations:
- The Lebanese Muslim Association – Sydney, New South Wales
- The Brotherhood of St Laurence – Melbourne, Victoria
- Multicultural Australia – Southern Queensland, Queensland.
