Michael Marslew Youth Foundation

The Michael Marslew Youth Foundation (MMYF) is a Youth Action Group that continues all the hard work Enough is Enough does in the community but from a youth perspective.

At the heart of the MMYF is the belief that young people are capable of making a difference in society. The group acts through a variety of avenues including:

  • developing their own initiatives
  • fundraising
  • providing Enough is Enough feedback on youth based initiatives

The Youth Action Group consists of young people ages 14-24, and recruitment is currently closed. If you would like to get involved in the MMYF outside of recruitment email Daniella at daniella@enoughisenough.org.au or call the office on (02) 9542 4092.
