Enhancing belonging for African diaspora youth in Australian schools

Schools are key sites to counter marginalisation and enable belonging. This study will investigate how Black African diaspora youth experience belonging in Australian schools and ways that schools can change practices to enhance belonging.      

The project will generate new knowledge of belonging and its importance for schooling using innoimageom0ya.pngvatory Participatory Action Research with African youth and teachers.

Expected outcomes are directions for education policy and practices, development of professional resources for working with diasporic students and capacitating young African people as researchers. Anticipated benefits are improved school engagement, retention and outcomes for African diaspora youth and insights for other marginalised youth.
