Multicultural youth council
The Multicultural Youth Council (MYC) is an advocacy and social group for young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds aged 14-25 years. The group provides skills and leadership opportunities, as well as social events and fun activities for young people. The aim of MYC is to connect young people to the wider community and ensure their voices and needs are heard.
Some of things you might get up to with MYC is planning and attending social events and festivals, organising excursions, playing sports, mentoring other young people, and being a voice to AWECC and local government.
