The MCCSA Youth Engagement Program (YEP) comprises early intervention and prevention programs that utilise a holistic approach to building young people’s resilience. The program focuses on assisting vulnerable and at-risk young people from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) backgrounds to build their resilience through coordinated and culturally appropriate support by providing access to a safe environment, study support, one on one mentoring, counselling, positive peer support networks, job-ready programs, and free access to sports and recreational activities:
Social soccer sessions
MCCSA creates safe and inclusive soccer programs that harness young people’s love of soccer to connect them to broader life opportunities and support. We run a weekly indoor soccer program for young men in Kilburn every Monday from 4 – 7pm. These sessions improve both social connections, health, and wellbeing, as well as developing volunteering, leadership and mentoring skills.
Supported by the City of Charles Sturt, young people from multicultural backgrounds of all ages can access homework support at the Brocas House in Woodville.
Youth Drop in
Every Thursday, MCCSA creates a positive and safe space for multicultural young people to engage with one another and develop positive trusting peer and role model relationships at the Brocas House, Woodville. This work actively develops and up-skills participants in a range of personal development areas: communication skills, problem solving, and goal setting. Participants are actively engaged in driving the programs and activities which involve everything from crafts to job readiness.
