The Menslink Business Breakfast is a great opportunity for leading Canberrans to show their support for a truly local charity and a great cause. Now in its seventh year, the breakfast is an ideal networking event for anyone interested in supporting young men across our region.

Over the past eleven years, Menslink has supported over a thousand young men through their adolescence to become contributing, productive members of society. Yet the statistics are still stacked against young men and we need your assistance to help turn them around. Young men are overwhelmingly represented in adverse violence, crime, school and university retention rates, while suicide remains the leading cause of death among young males aged from 15 right through to 45.

  • using strengths based approaches when working with men
  • engaging men in child protection issues and family based programs
  • exploring skills used to work with men in a non-threatening way and modelling effective, respectful and inclusive communication when working with men
