Throughout the year, more than 1,000 young people from across Victoria took part in regular rehearsals and tutorials, specialised workshops and public performances that demonstrated the young musicians’ abilities and achievements. The cost of instruments and lessons can be barriers to a music education. With support from the Newsboys Foundation, a financial assistance program helped overcome these barriers by enabling financially disadvantaged young people to participate in the program. Providing specialist musical tuition also helped young people achieve their full musical potential. “I really like my conductor at MYO – she makes the music exciting. I like being extended in my music knowledge and playing with others in the orchestra.” ANGUS GREEN, MELBOURNE YOUTH STRINGS MELTON SECONDARY COLLEGE CALM Program The Newsboys Foundation supported the implementation of the Berry Street Education Model at the Melton Secondary College’s CALM program. The CALM program works with students who have disengaged from mainstream education. The Berry Street Education Model introduced teachers and students to evidence-based strategies that increased school engagement and academic growth. THE MIRABEL FOUNDATION Mirabel Teen Intervention Project The Newsboys Foundation is supporting The Mirabel Foundation in its mission to break the cycle of disadvantage, build self-esteem, encourage resilience and create a positive future.
