WE HELP KIDS FROM REFUGEE AND MIGRANT BACKGROUNDS THRIVE IN SCHOOL AND IN LIFE.
KIDS WHO NOW
Every year over 2000 kids from refugee and migrant backgrounds resettle in Victoria. Government settlement services focus on the family as a whole and generally end after the first six months. However, the post-settlement journey is complex and continues well beyond this point.
Refugee Migrant Children Centre (RMCC) provides specialist support through partnering schools to address the unique barriers and needs of school-aged kids from refugee and migrant backgrounds.
We bring together the key figures in each child’s life – their school, teachers, family, community – through tailored mentoring programs that support RMCC kids to achieve positive educational and social outcomes.
Can you imagine…
…going to school in a new country where you may not speak or write in the language; your parents don’t speak the language fluently; you have never been to school or it has been some time since you last went to school; the school system and curriculum isn’t set up to support your settlement needs; the culture is different; you have no friends; you’ve experienced trauma; or have no extended family around you for support?
This is why Refugee Migrant Children Centre (RMCC) exists. Join us in breaking down the barriers for kids that now call Australia home.
1 in 3 kids experience racial discrimination at school.
Racism in Australia is real, and it’s robbing kids of their confidence, their voice, and their futures.
Talking about it isn’t enough to create change.
We need action.
