The APRRN Secretariat is looking forward to working with its members on our youth engagement initiatives. If you’d like to get involved, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Julia Mayerhofer at firstname.lastname@example.org or Evan Jones at email@example.com. We look forward to hearing from you!
Watch the video project: Voices of Refugee Youth
APRRN has collected stories from refugee youth and refugee youth advocates for a video project used as an advocacy and awareness-raising tool at the 2016 UNHCR-NGO Consultations and at the 6th Asia Pacific Consultation on Refugee Rights (APCRR6). Watch the video here: Voices of Refugee Youth
Check out our YouTube Channel
Our YouTube Channel features a multitude of videos from youth around the region sharing their thoughts on youth advocacy and engagement. We are always accepting submissions and videos from members working with youth around the region. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on submitting a video to our channel.
Host a youth consultation
Hosting a youth consultation is a simple way to start being more engaged with refugee and local youth in your area. Should you wish to host a consultation in your specific geographic locale, please get in touch with the APRRN Secretariat. The APRRN Secretariat will happily share with you the methodology and toolkit which have already been used around the region to host dozens of youth consultation. Interested APRRN members should reach out to Julia (email@example.com) if they’d like a copy of the toolkit for internal use.
Read the briefing paper
Since many youth could not attend the Global Youth Consultations in Geneva in June 2016, APRRN prepared a briefing paper to compile all of the recommendations from refugee and asylum seeker youth from across the Asia Pacific region. Read the paper, here
Are you already working with refugee youth?
Then please share more about your work with us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are particularly interested to know more about the issues of refugee youth in the communities you are working in. We would also love to know if there are refugee youth leaders that APRRN can support. We are looking forward to hearing from you soon!
