Recipient Update


The Dick Smith Foundation’s donation of $50,000 has enabled us to run more community mentoring programs for young men aged 14-24 years. Outcomes of these programs assist boys to make better life choices when in high-risk peer pressured situations and empower them to have aspirations for their future.

We have had a number of boys who have gone on to receive their first paid employment and apprenticeships, breaking a cycle of intergenerational unemployment within their family, others who have reduced their alcohol and drug-intake and who have received professional support for their mental health issues, boys who are no longer being suspended from school and who are now taking leadership roles within their school. The support of Dick Smith Foods has ensured that the Top Blokes Foundation can have a consistent presence in the community, letting the boys know that we are here to help them succeed in life.
