20th Man Fund

Supports our homeless, disadvantaged and disconnected youth.

Founded by Les Twentyman OAM, the 20th Man Youth Fund provides crucial support services for young people and their families. 20th Man Fund programs and services cover education-support, sports and recreation, counseling, personal development, life–experiences and employment pathways.

Young people in Melbourne’s West are facing increasing hardship that ultimately leads to behavioral problems. The pressure placed on a young person living in a low socio-economic area is not well understood by the general population. This pressure leads to the young person disconnecting from society in general, sinking into extreme levels of low self esteem and self-worth and engaging in high-risk activity.

The 20th Man Youth Fund aims to reconnect them with their families and communities enabling them to reach their full potential and make a positive contribution to society.
