We would love for you to join us at our next event:
Telling it how it really is… Stamina and leadership from the frontline of Social Change
Presented by Les Twentyman – one of Australia’s best-known youth outreach workers and social campaigners has devoted his life to young people doing it tough.
Les will share his experience leading awareness for “how it really is” on a range of community issues including youth homelessness, drug abuse, prison reform and social welfare.
Find out how this man was able to get the Governor General, state Government ministers and leaders of industry to the ‘dark-streets’ of Australia they never thought existed.

LOCATION: LITTLE RED POCKET
422 Little Collins Street
Cost: $10.50 for Jobs Australia Members

(Entry will be your donation to the LTFoundation)
A few reasons why Les Twentyman inspires us…
Les 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.
Plus, he was asked to introduce his Holiness The Dalai Lama at his Melbourne conference in June 2013.
