OVP strengthens communities by reaching young people where they are and providing essential, developmental resources in an engaging and relatable learning environment, where youth are safe to express themselves and explore their passions.
Over 17 years, OVP has educated, empowered, and engaged over 12,000 isolated and at-risk youth across Australia, through evidence-based, music and arts programs, mentoring services and digital mental health tools.
OVP programs equip young people to focus on important decision making for their wellbeing, provide valuable drive in the direction of their passions, and toward the development of their future education or career endeavours.
Too often, programs are created without consultation with young people, leading to services that fail to engage and inspire youth. OVP is different. Experienced facilitators and mentors ensure that youth receive tailored and flexible support, utilising their passions and interests as the basis for positive change, and empowering life choices.
OVP mentoring and workshops provide a mental health toolkit, integrated with creative mediums (hip-hop music, dance, film production). Youth learn lifelong skills and gain confidence that ignites their unlimited potential.
Sisters Rose is a musical duo of sisters, April and Chanel Taylor, who have participated in four music productions with OVP. You may have also seen their performance at the Murwillumbah Youth Festival. As a result of their time with OVP, the sisters are being mentored by Indigenous singer-songwriter and activist, Nidala Barker. April is studying Music Production at SAE, and Chanel has won the Southeast Region Middle Secondary Leadership Award for 2023, and is a nominee for an Indigenous artist competition.
