The YoungGems® program aims to empower diverse communities through entrepreneurship education.
The YoungGems® program equips the participants from a migrant background with essential skills that are required to not only start and run a business, but that are also invaluable to any future workplace. This pilot program consists of 6 x 3 hour sessions of sound and real-world entrepreneurial training experience.
Delivered in partnership with Gem Star and City of Canning, there will be sponsored places to the YoungGems® program. There is no charge to you or your business but you will need to commit to the time involved.

UnitingCare West is a proud partner of Multicultural Futures. Knowing that we can depend on the team to readily collaborate and walk alongside us to support people who need our combined skills and abilities in order to have their goals met is, quite simply, fantastic.
Access Housing and Multicultural Futures have a well-established, collaborative working relationship going back many years. We look forward to continuing and building upon this relationship into the years ahead as we partner to assist some of the community’s most vulnerable people.
We rely heavily on the support of agencies and programs such as Multicultural Futures in order to ensure best outcomes and recovery for people. The contribution of this flexible and culturally sensitive agency is a partnership that we will continue to build and foster.
With help from Multicultural Futures, we now stand on our own feet and by paying tax hopefully, we can give the opportunity for another family to make change for a more peaceful and prosperous life.
We highly valued Multicultural Futures’ contribution to developing our first Cultural Diversity Strategy. They brought a wealth of cultural insight and strong community connections with newly settled Cockburn community members which ensured a rich diversity of views were captured.
