The Western Young People's Independent Network (WYPIN) is a group of young people of refugee and migrant background between 12-25 years of age living in the western region of Melbourne.
WYPIN was established in 1989 by a group of young people who were interested in challenging racism in the community and to empower young people to develop programs and activities in line with their needs and aspirations. WYPIN's Committee of Management is made up of young people.
WYPIN continues to support young people to express and advocate what their needs are and serve as a voice for refugee young people in the Western region. WYPIN frequently speaks to local and federal ministers and participates and respond to community consultations.
