The Multicultural Youth SA Inc (MYSA) Driving YOUth to Employment Program provides supervised experience behind the wheel specifically targeting young Muslim women and young at-risk migrant women under the age of 35 who have experienced intimate partner / family violence with the view to them achieving employment via MYSA’s youth employment venture Miss MYSA Events.
