Community leadership: standing up for your community through unions and other community groups

How do I get resources and attention for my cause? What opportunities are available for training and roles as a community leader? Where do I start building a network of allies in migrant communities?

This training session is an opportunity to hear from community leaders who have stepped up to help their communities get the resources and attention they deserve, and how they did it, including tips about groups to be a part of, training and development opportunities, and grants that you may be able to apply for

Who is this training for?

This training is for emerging migrant and refugee community leaders, activists and volunteers, bicultural workers, and anyone speaking up and campaigns for migrant workers' rights.

MWC "Solidarity Hour" series

Objective and format

The MWC "Solidarity Hour" series aims to build capacity in migrant communities and community service organisations to address issues related to labour exploitation among migrant workers. They are short online sessions facilitated by expert trainers. The sessions include group discussion, Q&A, and hand-out resources.

Why train with the Migrant Workers Centre?

MWC is a leading organisation in migrant workers' rights. It is the only service of its kind in Australia, offering free and confidential case management support to migrant workers experiencing workplace issues, and leading research and advocacy for migrant workers' rights in Australia. Our education program delivers critical information on workplace rights to thousands of migrant workers every year, and builds capacity in migrant communities by training and employing community leaders as Bicultural Educators. 

Custom training sessions

We can design custom sessions to meet the needs of your community or program participants. If you have any questions or would like to discuss organising a session, please contact Alba Khouri, Project Support Organiser ([email protected]).
