We are Young
How Colosoul Began
The Colosoul Group Inc. begun in 2005 as a response to the growing need for hands on youth participation within the arts and media industry. With the difficulty of attaining the right skills due to the lack of mentorship available Colosoul opened its doors to youths from the ages of 13-25 years old. Colosoul over the years has helped hundreds of youths to find a pathway that best suits the individual giving them guidance, encouraging self confidence and empowering them.
This mentorship program is especially designed for those 18-25 year olds who are looking at studies, currently studying, or who have graduated.
It is a known fact that it can be almost impossible to get a job in the area that you have studied if you do not have the necessary experience required.This may cause them to experience a lot of distress, low self-esteem and depression.
The L.I.C.K. program is designed to give the mentee as much practical hands-on experience in their chosen field to greatly increase their skills, and therefore, their chances of future employment.
The GAP Program is a hands-on, intensive mentoring program targeted at youths between the ages of 13 and 18 who are struggling with the normal schooling system. This may be due to their learning style, i.e. being kinaesthetic-tactile learners (those who learn through activity), rather than auditory/visual learners, or disengagement from the community.
GAP’s aim is to give these young people a positive, constructive and creative environment in which to find their passion and direction, re-engage with the community, and learn in a style/at a pace which they find easy to cope with.
Participants in the GAP Program have the opportunity to receive mentoring in a wide range of creative industries, including fashion design, hair & make-up styling, graphic design, photography, creative writing, retail, reception/HR, art curating, music production, film production, events management, and small-business management.
Each participant is assigned a mentor, a member of the Colosoul Group team, who will guide and support them in achieving their goals, and discuss with them what they are interested in and feel comfortable with and set tasks/deadlines accordingly.
Regular workshops are held, and there is also the opportunity to attain a nationally recognised diplomas through our educational provider ACAS, or a certificate of recognition. By participating in GAP, young people are able to build up their portfolio in creative industries which it may otherwise be difficult to gain professional experience in.
Colosoul reaches out to Aboriginal young people who are particularly interested in creative activities.
With the areas Colosoul offers within its media and arts mentorship program, we hope that it will open an avenue for Aboriginal young people to participate creatively whilst also encouraging team leadership.
The mentor ship program offers professional mentors who can assist in the progress and development of the participant.
