Settlements Engagement and Transition Support Project (SETS) has established a Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) which consists of young people, aged between 16-24, and newly arrived to Australia within the last 5 years. 12 young people attended the first YAC at our base in Mount Pritchard.

The aim of the SETS YAC is to:

  • Provide opportunities for volunteering, or to support young people in accessing volunteering opportunities such as internships or work experience, to improve their employability.
  • Working with young people to think about, and articulate their goals, for the future.
  • Supporting family members to understand and support a young person’s goals and pathways, including understanding the Australian education and employment system.
  • Provision of youth activities to facilitate wellbeing and social participation in collaboration with various partners.
  • Provision of leadership seminars for young people

YAC will meet regularly and will work towards achieving its aims. For further information please contact Fr Fadi Nemme on 0416 730 720.

SETS project is funded by Department of Social Services through the Assyrian Australian Association.
