'Building Blokes' Mentoring Program For Men Aged 16-24
The Building Blokes program is a personal development program for young men aged 16-24. The program covers a range of key social topics that will help young men make positive and healthy life decisions, with discussions based around:
- Improving their well-being by increasing their conflict resolution skills;
- Building stronger relationships with their partners, peers and families;
- Increasing their skills to avoid the harmful impacts of gambling, drugs and alcohol;
- Developing resilience to common life pressures, such as peer pressure and social media; amongst many others.

If you know of a young man who has fines with the Department of State Debt Recovery, they can reduce their debt by participating in the Building Blokes program - up to $2,000 over our eight-week program. Top Blokes Foundation is an approved organisation through the Work and Development Order (WDO) Scheme.
Please note: to be eligible to participate in the WDO scheme, the young man must qualify under certain criteria, for example, receive Centrelink benefits. More information can be found on the NSW Revenue website.
All applications to pay off fines through WDO will be assessed once the initial application has been received by the Top Blokes Foundation.
