DIANELLA Secondary College has launched its Youth Connections Program for students from refugee and migrant backgrounds.

The College and partners Metropolitan Migrant Resource Centre opened the program at an event attended by Stirling MHR Michael Keenan on August 31.

The program aims to increase knowledge and access to post-school pathways for students from refugee and migrant backgrounds.

Balga Senior High School is also a project partner.

Dianella Secondary College principal Wayne Austin said the College was fortunate to have the centre giving students the ability to make informed decisions on their post-school pathway options.

According to City of Stirling statistics, the unemployment rate in the Balga-Mirrabooka was 22 per cent and 12.2 per cent in Westminster.
