Supports for Young People

MiCare’s Youth services work together with young people and their families to navigate/address the challenges of moving to a new country. We support young people to achieve their full potential, realize their individual strengths, improve self-esteem, confidence, well-being and connection with family and community

Individual support

We offer one-to-one support for young people to equip and empower them to address their individual needs to:

  • Increase independence and personal wellbeing
  • Improve family, social, and community connections
  • Support economic and education pathways

Homework & Family Learning Clubs

Through a family-centered approach, we deliver education support to young people via homework programs, and simultaneously build the capacity of families to support their child’s learning goals, engage with their school communities as well as access information about services to meet the family’s needs. The Homework and Family Learning Clubs are facilitated in partnerships with local schools, communities, other providers, and volunteers.

School Holiday Programs

We work with young people to design and lead school holiday activities in partnership with other organizations. These activities offer an opportunity for young people to build independence, friendships, leadership, and experience new adventures and interests.

  • Youth camps
  • Beach days & surf lifesaving training
  • Sports days
  • Day trips and other recreational activities.

Young people’s leadership

MiCare facilitates and mentors youth-led programs that aim to provide young people to engage, participate, strengthen leadership capabilities and become active leaders in their community. Youth-led initiatives such as those of Wyndham Ambassadors for Multicultural Youth (WAMY) make invaluable community contributions.

During COVID, WAMY developed in language information resources about COVID health messaging, restrictions and vaccinations, to promote community safety. Watch our video here

I would like to thank you and MiCare for giving me this opportunity to have a laptop to study the IT program as I will start the course soon. The course will be two days in the class face to face and two days online so it helps me saving time to study at home instead of going to the library.
