Young people’s voices amplified through the Shout Out project.

In order to create a means through which the voices of young people of migrant or refugee background could be more broadly heard across the community, CMY created the Shout Out project in 2014. Within its first year of operation, 18 young people were provided with training in public speaking, a public speakers bureau was created, a website promoting the speakers was launched and 35 speaking engagements were delivered to over 2,000 people. This proved to be a powerful way of bringing young people’s voices to a broad audience and Shout Out continues operate through CMY today.
