The Banyule Youth Services SALDHIG Diverse Communities project team have developed a FREE 2-hour Cultural Competency Training for local services to better support & work with the Somali Australian community.
The training is designed to support workers to engage and work with Somali Australian and Muslim young people & families in our local region. Find out how your service can be more accessible, culturally-appropriate and inclusive for this community.
The training will be hosted by Somali Australian workers, who will generously share both their professional and personal lived-experiences to inform and educate local service providers on how to:
Engage with Somali Australian young people & families
Increase representation and cultural-awareness within their organisation
Create safe work environments for employees from Somali Australian and Muslim communities
Better promote opportunities to those from CALD communities
Understand more about the culture, religion and experiences of people from the Somali Australian & Muslim communities
This training is suitable for anyone who works with young people or families in the Banyule region. We are also able to consider requests from neighbouring municipalities.
Venue: Can be hosted in your workplace (in-person is preferential) or at Banyule City Council offices in Greensborough
Duration: 2 hours
