“Being involved in the Welcome to Australia project as a peer facilitator, I found many opportunities to give back.”
— Simon, MYAN Youth Ambassador
We have run Welcome to Australia since 2017, delivering it to over 140 students in partnership with 24 peer educators.
Students learn about First Nations history and culture, emergency preparedness, Australian slang, how to volunteer and other topics designed and delivered by peer facilitators.
Welcome to Australia is an innovative program that improves the experiences of young people settling in Australia.
Students build a stronger sense of belonging, develop greater confidence to help out in the community and build awareness of support services and how to access them.
Peer facilitators grow more diverse networks, learn new skills to help others and develop greater confidence to be active participants in the Australian community.
We can tailor the Welcome to Australia program to suit the needs of your students. Whether they have just arrived or have been in Australia for a few years, the Welcome to Australia program can support them to build confidence, knowledge and a sense of belonging.
