The Les Twentyman Foundation

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

The Les Twentyman Foundation (formerly the 20th Man Fund) 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.
