The Youth Affairs Council Victoria is excited to host two YACVic Rural Conferences in regional Victoria in June 2017. The conferences will bring together over 250 sector professionals and industry experts from across regional Victoria for two days of professional development and networking opportunities.
YACVic Rural proudly presents the Centre for Multicultural Youth (CMY) as part of our regional training initiative—bringing quality training to the youth and community sector in regional areas.
The training modules are designed to be applicable across a broad range of sectors and for work with young people from any community. The modules draw on CMY’s 25+ years of experience working with young people from diverse migrant and refugee backgrounds. Participants will improve their confidence and capacity to provide a culturally inclusive and responsive service for young people.
The Youth Affairs Council Victoria is thrilled to be partnering with the Victorian Government to deliver a series of 12 youth forums across the state. The forums, themed 'Turning Ideas into Action', are designed for young people to learn how to develop skills in community involvement and as a platform to discuss their ideas.
