Who are we?

We’re Tracks 4 Change. A small group of people with a big passion for music, young people and making a difference.

Why are we doing this?

We know young people have a lot to say but sometimes feel like they don’t know the way to make their voices heard. We want to empower these young people to make a difference in the world through the power of music. After all, one clever lyric can pack more punch than a long-winded speech by a politician.

We’re on a mission to help young people show any doubters that they care about the society they’re part of. We want to make it worthwhile for young people to exercise their right to vote in the future.
