The Tools and Self-Esteem to Succeed
MAC’s expertise is in fostering change, opening minds to innovation, minimising negative behaviour and the promotion of positive transitions within the community. Through training within the creative disciplines, MAC’s main goals revolve around equipping disaffected young people with the tools and self-esteem to succeed and make a real contribution to Welsh society and the local economy – local solutions to local problems.
Using diverse media such as music, music technology, photography, video and graffiti art, our students will be working towards a productive future breaking the cycle of exclusion many of them experience on a day to day basis. Shining a light on a brighter future is central to our mission.
Young people who are ’NETLE’ (not in education, training, learning or employment) are encouraged to learn essential life skills through experiential learning and fun.
Our team or ‘Family’ as we prefer to call ourselves, have well over 40 yrs. experience of working with young people. All the team are either youth work, social work or educationally trained.
Many of our team previously enjoyed successful careers in the media industry working at the BBC, ITV and independent TV companies. Many are currently working at local and national radio stations.
