We believe in young people.
We believe that they have immeasurable worth and are valuable, exceptional and unique.
We believe that young people are interesting and fun to be around. They not only have the potential to do great things and be great people, they already are!
We are driven by a desire to help young people believe these truths for themselves, so that they think, feel and act from a place of security and confidence in a world full of opportunity and challenge.
The Mix exists to work with these young people, their families, schools and communities; to enable them to think positively about themselves, make positive choices, resist negative influences and become the best they can be.
No issues affecting young people and their families are irrelevant to us and our staff, volunteers and partners are all committed to supporting them.
We work hard to do this by Building Community, Providing Opportunity and Growing Potential.
