Join the Auburn International Women's Day Celebration 2014
This year's Auburn International Women's Day Celebration is led and organised by the Auburn Diversity Services Inc. (ADSi).
ADSi CEO Ms Tia Roko, Treasurer / IWSC CEO Ms Patricia Frost and project managers met with the Minister and the MP. Ms Najeeba Wazefadost also attended as one of local community leaders.
This meeting was organised by Mr Craig Laundy MP, with a special focus on how employment services can be tailored to help deliver improved outcomes for new migrants and refugees.
Mr Hartsuyker said new arrivals often needed intensive support when settling in Australia and organisations such as ADSi delivered vital services.
Mr Laundy acknowledged the importance of the services ADSi delivered in the local community.
ADSi representatives introduced the organisation, services and plans. ADSi also presented to the Minister and the MP how the organisation helps clients from either humanitarian or refugee background, be part of the Australian community, including areas of youth, employment, success and challenges.
The Minister's office released an official Media Release after this visit.
ADSi welcomes the visit from the Minister and MP, and highly appreciates their strong passion and support to our services to local communities.
ADSi will continue endeavouring as a lead community organisation in the local area to help clients, in closer partnership with all governmental, non-governmental and individual stakeholders.

Welcome Back To ADSi Youth Services in 2014
ADSi Youth Workers welcome all our clients back and wish all had a wonderful holiday.
At ADSi, we run the Drop-in Centre every week from 5:00pm-7:00pm. We also run the Homework Help Program for high school students every Tuesday from 5:00pm-7:00pm during school terms.
In additional to regular programs, ADSi in partnership with the Auburn City Council, Auburn Youth Centre and Inner West Skills Centre, etc. will run a Youth Summit in April 2014. The Youth Summit is open to all young people, but mainly targets those who are disengaged or at risk of disengagement with society. Young people from over 30 schools are invited to attend.
The Western Sydney Youth Summit aims to provide these young people with the avenues they need to engage - including direct access to services that can help them overcome the barriers they are facing, direct access to local employers and service providers and the opportunity to participate in a variety of workshops and programs on the day (like “Speed careering” and an Industry Panel discussion).
In June, we will have the 2014 Western Sydney Refugee Youth Awards. These awards acknowledge the achievement of young people of refugee backgrounds in academic, sports, creative, performance arts and community leadership. All the nominations forms are sent to the local schools.
Finally, ADSi has organised boys and girls soccer teams. If you want to join our soccer team, please contact the ADSi Youth Team.
