Evidence based outcomes

Matching students with the best musicians and creative pioneers in their field, MPOWER Mentoring inspires, guides and transforms young people’s lives. 

Based on One Vision Production’s passion-based mentoring model and reporting system selected by the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet as an example of best practice for other organisations, MPOWER Mentoring’s innovative platform demonstrates outcomes. 

Our skilled staff match young people identified as at risk by their education institution to one of our world class and well respected mentors.  With an extensive catalogue of actors, musicians, artists and professional youth mentors, we link students up virtually with their idols in the areas they are interested in to build their skills and confidence.  

Access to all young people

Our Mentoring program reaches every corner of Australia, giving access to many young people in remote areas who otherwise wouldn’t have access to such a world class program. 

From increased motivation and positive behaviour change, to enhanced literacy and numeracy skills, MPOWER Mentoring engages young people in a more holistic sense to identify their own goals and feel more ownership in achieving them.

What is included

• Dedicated Engagement Officer to link youth to a mentor in their chosen creative arts field;
• In person or virtual youth mentoring hosted on our secure web portal;
• 1 x personalised development plan per mentee; and
• 2 x wellbeing check-ins per mentee.
