Metro Assist recognises that young people need a targeted approach to ensure their needs are met in the settlement context. Therefore, Metro Assist has designed a fun and comprehensive youth program for young people aged 12-25 with a refugee background, are humanitarian entrants or migrants who are settling into Australia.
Our youth case workers empower young people who are new to the country (less than 5 years in Australia) by helping them to access services independently and find information that will enhance their own lives. We also provide referrals, advocacy, and individual and group consultations as well as information sessions on youth-related topics.
