Musicians Making A Difference
Next year, MMAD will celebrate 2 decades of life-changing work with children & young people in need. The passion, dedication and talent of our beautiful team has seen MMAD has grow from a voluntary project to an organisation with a national reach, including, 150 young people on the frontline each week across Victorian, New South Wales & Queensland communities, 40,000 people annually during outreach initiatives and 1 million through online & content engagement nationally.
We deliver frontline & online creative support to engage, inspire, educate & empower young people through the power of music & mentoring. Young people are the inspiration for all innovation, creativity & impact within our very MMAD organisation.
Our initiatives include community outreach, a music soup kitchen, street support group, creative youth mentoring camps & courses, free youth wellbeing platform, leadership development, educational content development, national youth campaign and social enterprises.
Support from some of the world’s biggest-hearted musicians alongside the unparalleled passion of our team & long-term collaborations with powerhouse partners has allowed MMAD to provide hope, support and pathways for positive change for young people in some of the most troubled but beautiful parts of Australia.
MMAD has a number of key values that maintain our grass-roots culture, heart, & excellence as we grow, including a belief that it takes a village to raise a child.
We are proud to unite with other charities, institutes & community groups to ensure young people have the best possible chance to overcome personal adversity, follow new dreams & find their place in the world.
Every young person deserves someone who believes in them and the opportunity to live their potential.
