Acculturation programs for international students and migrants to settle in Australia
“Together” is a collaborative project with the Christian business community and a non-for-profit organization (Hope Mission Centre). The project aims to support migrants and international students whose desire is to ultimately work and build their life in Australia. The core partners who initiated this project are Hope Mission Centre, JonoGee Studio, and MARKCubator. Our key goal is to holistically help these people who may have newly arrived in our country or existing students to successfully integrate into Australia culture and lifestyle and the local community.

This project is a holistic 4-month acculturation program that focuses on 3 main pillars of integration into Australia lifestyle – Living, Learning, Working with the local community engagement as the foundation of this program.
Live & Adapt
Our acculturation project aims to help international students adapt to the Australian way of life by equipping them with knowledge on how to live in a multicultural environment and how to manage your finances when living by yourself.
Learning & Study Excellence
Living away from their home country might make international students feel demotivated in their studies. As a community, we at the “Together” Project aim to encourage these students and give them tips on how to face the Australian education system.
Career Exploration & Industry Connection
Towards the end of the program, students will be equipped with knowledge about the local hiring processes and work environment. There will also be an Industry Networking Day for students to expand their personal network and learn from the experiences of industry experts.
