Junior Top-Blokes

In 2017 Community Activities Lake Macquarie secured an exclusive license from the Top Blokes Foundation to deliver the Junior Top Blokes Mentoring Program across Lake Macquarie and into the Hunter Region. 

The Junior Top Blokes Mentoring Program is an 8 or 16 week mentoring program for male students ages 14-17 years. Delivered in high schools and community settings, this program uses a prevention and early intervention framework to provide an environment that fosters critical thinking so young men can build self-efficacy and the skills to lead healthy and safe lives. The program focuses on strength-based, harm minimisation and innovative mentoring delivery methods, to engage boys at a formative stage in their lives. 

The Junior Top Blokes Mentoring Program adheres to the National Mentoring Benchmarks, with content assessed by clinical psychologists. The program content is continually updated by educators in line with the latest research and current trends.

Delivery of the program is conducted in partnership with Northlakes Youth Service and staff from Oasis Media which helps young people to connect with additional support services across the region post program. 

If you are interested in having the Junior Top Blokes Program in your school or sponsoring a school, please contact Program Coordinator Toby on 49503811 or email topblokes@calm.org.au
