The Les Twentyman Foundation

Believes - positive intervention equals positive outcomes for our at-risk youth

The Les Twentyman Foundation provides crucial support services for young people and their families. The Les Twentyman Foundation programs and services cover education-support, sports and recreation, counselling, personal development, life–experiences and employment pathways.

Young people in Victoria are facing increasing hardship that ultimately leads to behavioural 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 Les Twentyman Foundation aims to reconnect them with their families and communities enabling them to reach their full potential and make a positive contribution to society.

What's On


The Les Twentyman Foundation is holding a breakfast for our supporters. This breakfast will be hosted by our Chairman Dr David Young with special guest and MC Gary Sweet and this will be your chance to meet the new CEO.
