The Centre for Multicultural Youth (CMY) is a state-wide community based organisation that provides services to and advocates for the needs of young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds.

In supporting young people, CMY combines policy development and direct service delivery within a community development framework. This approach gives CMY strong connections with young people and their communities while enabling positive change on a local, state and national level.
