At KYUP! Project our goal is to end the cycle of violence at a grassroots level. Our workshops have been delivered to more than 10,000 young people in schools across Australia and NZ. From young girls in the most remote Indigenous communities to inner-city teenagers in metro areas, KYUP! Project violence prevention education programs inspire young people to value and champion their safety and wellbeing and to break through limiting self-doubt.
These days we are not just working with girls, Founder, Mel Thomas is in boys schools talking about the big issues that impact our girls – violence, porn, equality, and consent.
Intimate partner violence has been at epidemic proportions in Australia for too long. The problem is vast, it’s not going away but that’s ok because neither is Mel and the KYUP! team.
