Multicultural Youth Transition Mentors Program
Multicultural Youth (MY) Transition Mentor Program supports young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds with the transition into higher education, Vocational Education and Training (VET) and/or work.
Migrant Resource Centre Tasmania (TAS) will sign up between 10 and 20 young people from a refugee and migrant background to be mentored and will continue to recruit mentors from UTAS and Tas TAFE. The transition mentors will assist mentees to prepare for the transition from college and the Young Migrant Education Program (YMEP) to tertiary education, training, and work. Recruitment will focus on encouraging young people who are from a refugee and migrant background to participate as mentors.
The program supports young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds to have:
Improved understanding of pathways to further education, training, and employment.
New connections with members of the Tasmanian community.
Increased support networks for young people entering higher education and VET courses.
