MAD News!

After a different end to last year when we held a altered Christmas Program, we are talking with the committee about how successful it was and maybe trailing it annually.

The MAD Program will be holding its first program in 2023 on March the 17th. Look forward to hosting you all again this year. 

Once again we would like to thank Shell's QGC Business Community Grant for supporting this program!

What is MAD?

MAD is a program for young people aged 12-18 that are struggling with anything in their day to day life. At MAD we try to create a family-like atmosphere where young people feel free in a safe environment, to share what they are going through. What makes the MAD Program different and successful is our young people find answers from each other in a peer support enviroment, from other young people that have dealt with similar circumstances.

Where are programs held?

COVID-19 has claimed another victim. MAD programs will no longer be held at Canoe Point, Tannum Sands, at the Tanyalla Recreation and Conference Centre. Due to financial issues, the Anglican Church has sold our regular venue, and Tanyalla is to be torn down. 

The MAD Program now facilitates from Boyne Island as of our August program 2021. Boyne Island Environmental Educational Centre.

We would like to thank Shell’s QGC business for supporting this program
