Musicians Making A Difference (MMAD) Inc is an Australian charity that exists to change young lives through the power of music, dance & mentoring to inspire young people to make their lives remarkable. We provide creative support to young people, (especially those who have suffered emotional abuse, neglect and disadvantage) in overcoming challenges such as homelessness, destructive behaviour, exclusion from school, family breakdown, drug and alcohol dependency, unemployment and reoffending. Our goal is not only to break negative cycles, but to empower young people to go on and make their own difference within the community.
MMAD offer 15 initiatives with a proven impact including intensive crisis mentorship, street outreach, creative mentoring, youth support groups, alternative education, emotional expression workshops, specialised camp programs, youth leadership challenges and social enterprise services.
