Young People Making A Difference (MAD) 

Young people making a difference by recognising their ability to make their dreams reality!

MAD News!

What an amazing camp with such an amazing group of young people. The weekend was full of fun, tears and laughter but there was mever a dull moment with this bunch. The MAD family is only becoming stronger.


Thank you to Shell's QGC Business Community Grant for sponsoring 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.
