There are a number of ways you can have your voice heard in our community. CMY, government departments and other organisations are regularly seeking young people's feedback on a number of issues.
Check below for opportunities to have your say:
CMY and the University of Melbourne invite young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds to take part in a survey about technology usage
Who can participate? Young people aged 16 - 26 years from a refugee or migrant background (born overseas or have a parent or grandparent from overseas).
Why should I participate? This is an opportunity to share your experiences. Information collected will be used to build knowledge and support and improve how services like CMY provide information and communicate with young people through digital technologies and online platforms. We will also use the information to inform policy guidance to government at varying levels and in advocacy.
INVITE YOUR PARENTS – We’d love to know how your parents engage with your digital experience too. Share this link https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/L87NJJS and they can go in the draw to win an iPad mini as well!

Participate in research
Dr Usha M. Rodrigues from Deakin University will examine how traditional media reports news about culturally diverse people, and how information spreads on social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook. Your participation will involve being interviewed 3-4 times over a three month period (till April 2017). The 10-minute interviews (over the phone) will seek information about your news consumption and what kind of information you receive from these different sources (traditional sources v/s non-traditional sources). Email Dr Rodrigues at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (03) 9244 3045, if you wish to participate.
