WE HELP KIDS FROM REFUGEE AND MIGRANT BACKGROUNDS THRIVE IN SCHOOL AND IN LIFE.
KIDS WHO NOW
RMCC supports school-aged kids from refugee and migrant backgrounds to overcome the barriers they face as they settle into life in Australia. These barriers can include learning a new language, adjusting to a new culture, overcoming significant gaps in education, and living with experiences of trauma, racism and financial hardship.
RMCC helps the kids through weekly after-school mentoring programs that are tailored to their evolving needs. We work with the key figures in a child’s life – their school, teachers, family, community – to create a network of support to help the kids 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.
Write a note of encouragement
You can make school easier for kids from refugee and migrant backgrounds by writing them a note of encouragement.
The note will be put into the backpacks we give them containing all the materials they need for school.
