Description

This report provides a snapshot of the immediate impacts of COVID-19 on both employment, and the search for employment, for young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds in Victoria.

During the March-April lockdown period in 2020, CMY interviewed 41 young people connected with their Employment Empowers program. The researchers asked participants about the impact of COVID-19 on their employment journey.

This report explores the findings, providing insights into young job seekers’ experiences and key recommendations on how to more effectively support young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds into employment – ensuring no one is locked out or left behind.
