The Crescendo Trust of Aotearoa (CTOA) a uses music as a vehicle to transition youth to more positive pathways and shift negative connotations. Mentors with success in the music industry nurture and empower young New Zealanders and give them lifelong skills through training in music, film/photography, media and communication.
Mentors are the positive role models to these young people, checking on their wellbeing and safety and making sure they know they are loved. Youth who may have previously aspired to being a gang member or a drug dealer are now becoming music producers or rappers.
