Our Team at YEmpower is committed to building communities and spaces where Young Australians can come together to share their ideas, skills and connect with each other to form a national network of empathetic and capable Mentors and Mentees.

The team at YEmpower has spent the last few months creating, ideating and implementing a series of programs and frameworks that ensures the organisation we are building will reflect the kind of society most of our team wish they grew up in.

Tallulah Watson Moyle

Co-Founder - YEMPOWER.

Co-host of When Strong Women Talk, Tallulah is a young activist who is studying a social science and politics degree.


She has a strong desire to change the world and strives to leave every place better than the way she found it. This guiding principle is what follows her work in YEmpower.


Tallulah has past experience working as a student representative and as part of a youth led association. Tallulah is building her experience with public speaking and workshop facilitation and one day hopes to be paid to speak professionally.


With an affinity for social media, she helps coordinate YEmpower’s digital presence and is also a mentee in a mentor partnership.

Co-Founder - YEMPOWER

Ness is a social entrepreneur, community builder and energy worker. Her passion is connecting Young Australians with the opportunities, knowledge and connections they need to grow and thrive.


Her mission is to provide young people with the tools, resources and opportunities she wished were accessible to her when she was 17. 

Ness has spent the last five years of her professional career working with Young Australians, in high-level organising roles in the student advocacy, the NFP Sector, NSW and Australian Parliament and the Union Movement. 

After spending most of her professional career looking for mentorship and guidance to no avail she began to think more deeply about the root causes of her experiences.


This led her to found YEmpower in early 2020.

Co-Founder - YEMPOWER & OurBloc

Matt is a youth advocate, entrepreneur and artist. His joy is in aligning young people with their purpose, and identity, and in showcasing their efforts.


A working musician for 6 years, Matt took stock of the poor treatment those receive in the music industry. He founded Our Bloc Community Studio and Radio in 2021. More importantly, Our Bloc offers musical and technical educational opportunities, and improves accessibility outcomes in a traditionally prohibitive and exclusive industry. The core motive underlying Our Bloc is valuing creation. Matt understands the importance of sharing and building platforms to empower young people.


Matt is currently studying a degree in Audio Production and Sound Design at JMC Academy in Sydney.


Lucy Gooch-Tonga

Matthew Jeffrey

Co-Founder - YEMPOWER.

Lucy is a multi-disciplinary creative and down to earth human being.


Growing up away from the city meant there was always an abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables, local music and strong sense of community, values she holds strong and hopes to inspire among others.


After spending some time in youth social justice and activism spaces she quit studying at university to further explore real-world experiences. Culture, arts and intersectionality are key concepts she platforms when making her way through the world; having been involved in projects such as short films, script-writing, cartooning, music videos, poetry reading, zine-creation, short stories, climate justice and social activism.



She also enjoys a good cup of tea.
