Empowering refugee and migrant children &
youth to create their own opportunities
Refugee Migrant Children Centre (RMCC) empowers refugee and migrant children and youth to create their own opportunities. Our mission is to minimise disadvantage that is prevalent amongst our beneficiaries aged 5-18 years and the various educational and social barriers they face, as well as enabling independence and facilitating a sense of belonging.
Our programs have 4 target focuses, education, social identity, life skills, and mental health and wellbeing. These target areas create opportunities through tackling the unique barriers faced by vulnerable refugee and migrant children and prioritise wellbeing, so that a sense of agency, value and identity can be developed within the broader Australian community.
Established in 2012 by Alice Wojcik and Bobby Allen, the RMCC has evolved from a community group running a homework club at a local school to opening Victoria’s first Refugee Migrant Children Centre in early 2016. Our range of programs are run by a passionate and dedicated team, in collaboration and partnership with various supporting community and governmental organisations.
