Young People Making A Difference (MAD)
The MAD Program has run two programs this year, in March and May in Yeppoon, costs and distance have forced us to look closer to Gladstone again for the majority of the participants to be able to access it easier. For this reason, we have organized to run the following two programs from Boyne Island Environmental Educational Centre, in the hope the site will meet the needs of the program and the young people.
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 has been torn down.
The MAD Program will be trying out a new venue at Boyne Island as of our August program 2021. Boyne Island Environmental Educational Centre.
