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 who now call Australia home to create their own opportunities.
The RMCC journey started back in 2012 with a humble homework club and has evolved to us assisting over 650 kids across multiple programs held within and outside of schools, and by 2020 our goal is to reach over 2000 kids in need.
Our mentoring programs have 4 target focus areas: education, identity and belonging, life skills, and mental health and wellbeing. These target areas tackle the unique and complex barriers kids from refugee and migrant backgrounds encounter by creating confidence, improving educational engagement and outcomes, establishing social connections and increasing independence. We prioritise each child’s wellbeing, so that a sense of agency, value and identity can be developed within school and 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.
