Youth Engagement

LEAP (Leadership Empowerment and Partnership) supports refugee youth with their homework, provides training in leadership skills and offers opportunities to build confidence and self-esteem. Currently this includes assistance with homework, particularly in English, maths and science, whilst also providing opportunities for skill development in sewing.

JAA’s holiday program has run during each term break over the year. It has provided opportunities for youth to get together and have fun while creating opportunities for new experiences and developing new skills. Our holiday programs are run in Dandenong in Melbourne and Ashfield in Sydney in close proximity to where members of the communities reside.

JAA works with Sudanese school children in Melbourne and Sydney.
