M-YES (Multicultural Youth Empowerment Strategy) Inc was founded by passionate agents of change in the community in order to motivate, empower and steer Australian youth from diverse cultural backgrounds to lead and maintain a successful life. We have a passion for change; our business it to plug youth into life changing relationships. We understand the current state of affairs for the youth from a complex and linguistically diverse (CALD) background. We understand the challenges faced by CALD youth in competing with the mainstream youth of the same age group. We have developed an innovative empowerment framework comprised of One-on-One Mentoring, Education and Training, and Positive Sports Impact in order to create opportunities for advancement and social networking. We believe that education plus opportunity equals success.
