This article explores the role of civil society in supporting the settlement or integration of young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds in Australia, through highlighting some of the work of the Multicultural Youth Advocacy Network (MYAN Australia). It emphasises the importance of a targeted approach to addressing the needs and building on the strengths of young people in countries of resettlement, with a focus on the MYAN’s National Youth Settlement Framework. It also highlights the fundamental place of youthcentred and participation approaches to supporting young people to realise their potential in the integration context.
