"You're responsible for your life ultimately and all the decisions you make, good or bad, will ultimately reflect on you, it will lead you to a good life or a bad one; it’s your choice."

Inspiring boys to grow into Top Blokes

Top Blokes Foundation is on a mission to improve young men's health and wellbeing. We work with boys over 3 to 6 months to increase their resilience, empathy and respect for self and others, and in doing so work to reduce the rates of suicides, mental health issues, anti-social and risk-taking behaviours.

Our preventative, evidence-based mentoring programs are delivered by qualified and experienced youth workers, and have been developed especially to engage and educate boys and young men. Our goal is to mentor and develop their critical-thinking and decision-making skills, as well as normalise a definition of masculinity beyond "strong" and "stoic" to improve young men's relationships with themselves and those around them.

We strongly believe that all Australians play a role in improving the wellbeing of our boys. Head to our FacebookInstagramTwitter and LinkedIn to join in on the conversations around young men's health.

Our 'It Starts With Us' message addresses the alarming numbers of suicides, on-road deaths and violence-related deaths in and by males. By changing the culture and improving young men's health, we can get these preventable deaths down to zero. Donate today to be a champion for the cause.
