The Les Twentyman Foundation:
Since its inception The Les Twentyman Foundation has provided crucial programs, services and resources assisting Victoria’s at-risk youth.
Raised in Braybrook in Melbourne’s West Les has devoted his life to young people doing it tough. Les is widely considered an expert on a range of community issues including youth homelessness, drug abuse, prison reform and social welfare.
He has consistently shone a light on emerging youth issues like gang violence, weapons carriage, cyber bullying and the growing trend of truancy in our education system. The hard-hitting DVD “The Realities of Cyber Bullying” and CSA “Knives Trash Lives” are testament to Les’ “pull no punches” approach to the damage caused to youth through peer pressure and social media.
Les is often called on to visit volatile regional areas of Australia in a bid to bring about harmony and cooperation where gangs and youth violence is a problem. He has also accompanied the Governor General, state Government ministers and leaders of industry to the ‘dark-streets’ of Australia they never thought existed.
Les has devoted his life to those-in-need. The Les Twentyman Foundation maintains his vision and legacy.
