The Top Blokes Foundation is the leading male social education organisation that aims to foster the mental health, emotional resilience and community engagement of at-risk and disadvantaged young men aged 10-24. Through our peer-led mentoring and community leadership programs, young men develop positive decision-making skills, decreasing their risk-taking and anti-social behaviours while developing personal qualities of integrity and self-respect.
The Junior Top Blokes Mentoring Program is a 6-month interactive school-based program, facilitated by qualified youth workers, targeting boys aged 14-17 years and uses peer mentoring and social education principles to address social issues including alcohol and other drugs, risk taking, anger management, mental health, bullying, racism and peer pressure. Young men are challenged to change their attitudes on masculinity, influencing them to positively contribute to school, their broader community and to treat women and people from diverse backgrounds respectfully.
