Momentum is a social enterprise providing expert consultancy and speaker services to business, government, not-for-profit and philanthropic organisations. Australia is missing out on a vast pool of expertise, skill and knowledge because young people who have experienced disadvantage are seen as having limited potential. They are seen as the recipients of support, as opposed to having something valuable to offer the community. Our consultants, all aged 18-25 years, draw their expertise from a combination of their adverse life experiences, focused training and extensive work experience. Momentum consultants bring a unique perspective and integral knowledge to projects including program development, youth leadership mentoring, staff leadership training, organisation capacity building, and strategic youth engagement initiatives.
