top blokes logo Founded in 2006 by Melissa Abu-Gazaleh, the Top Blokes Foundation challenges and empowers over 1000 young men each year, around the ages of 14 -24 to reach their potential and to make positive life choices through the Top Blokes mentoring, leadership and resilience programs.


The Top Blokes Foundation encourages young men to be assets in their communities by providing a positive platform for young men to develop personal qualities including integrity, character and respect for others,while becoming positive role models to their peers.

Top Blokes addresses anti-social, risk taking behaviour and community disengagement issues that young men experience. Through their mentoring programs, Top Blokes help improve social and emotional resilience, mental health and wellbeing, as well as foster social inclusion.

Each year over 1000 young men around the ages of 14 -24 are empowered and challenged to make positive life choices and to reach their personal best through mentoring, leadership and resilience programs.
