RMCC empowers refugee and migrant children
and youth to create their own opportunities
Refugee Migrant Children Centre (RMCC) empowers refugee and migrant children and youth to create their own opportunities. We tackle the unique barriers faced during the settlement journey that lead to educational and social disadvantage for kids that now call Australia home.
The RMCC journey started back in 2012 with a homework club and has evolved to us assisting over 553 kids across multiple programs, and by 2020 our goal is to reach over 2000 kids. Our programs have 4 target focus areas: education, identity and belonging, life skills, and mental health and wellbeing. These target areas create confidence, increase independence, and prioritise wellbeing, so that a sense of agency, value and identity can be developed within the broader Australian community.
We’re a different kind of charity, functioning outside of the status quo and value being fluid with the changing world around us. We love what we do – and we do it differently by not providing one solution for every child and bringing together the important elements of a child’s life to work together: family, school and the community. We see each kid as unique and that means their potential is tapped into uniquely too.
