The Ucan2 program has been developed in response to the substantial number of young adults and older adolescents from refugee backgrounds who experience barriers to successful educational or employment pathways after completion of an on-arrival language program. It is a partnership program led by the Victorian Foundation for Survivors of Torture designed to increase education, training and employment opportunities for young people from refugee backgrounds during their first fifteen months of resettlement by developing partnerships between organizations providing support in these separate areas and establishing a multi-strategic approach.The Ucan2 program is designed for young people between 16 and 25 with refugee backgrounds who are concurrently undertaking the standard twelve-month English language program offered to newly-arrived refugees and migrants.
