- Les Twentyman Foundation
Tue 11th Jun
Les Twentyman has been on the frontline of heartbreak and hope for over 30 years. As one of Australia’s best-known youth outreach workers and social campaigners, Les Twentyman has been on the frontline of heartbreak and hope for over 30 years. Raised in Braybrook in Melbourne’s West, Les has devoted his life to young people doing it tough and is widely considered an expert on a range of community issues including youth homelessness, drug abuse, prison reform and social welfare. Les has consistently shone a light on emerging youth issues with a “pull no punches” approach to the risk our youth face from social disadvantage. Les is often called on to visit volatile areas of our cities and regions, in a bid to bring about harmony and cooperation, where anti-social behaviour has become a significant issue. He has accompanied the Governor General, state Government ministers and leaders of industry to see the ‘dark-streets’ of Australia they never thought existed. In addition to his tireless work with disadvantaged youth, Les takes every opportunity to be the voice of the disadvantaged, speaking through media, and to schools, community groups, service clubs, corporations, government and sporting clubs. Les’s work even reached his Holiness, The Dalai Lama, who met with Les in June 2013 to discuss his work with the underprivileged. Les has devoted his life to those-in-need and through the Les Twentyman Foundation he is seeking this important will continue into the foreseeable future. (more…)
