Galston High School
‘Since the forum our students have been proactive to voice the issues we were informed about on the Young Men's Health Forum. It was real eye opening experience for the boys to be put into small groups to interact and engage with other young men from different schools. Can't wait for next year!’
LISA HULME // Year 10 Adviser
Crestwood High School
‘The Young Men's Health Forum gave my students an opportunity to speak about issues relating to boys their age. They all spoke positively about the experience and felt the forum helped give them a fresh perspective on important issues facing young men today’
PETER JEPHTHAH // Year 10 Advisor
Castle Hill High School
‘After The Young Mens Health Forum I received phone calls and emails from parents thanking me for the meaningful conversations they had with their boys, based on forum speakers. The Forum had an immediate and important impact. The kind of impact that a students daily teachers cannot provide. I will be bringing students to the forum every year!’
DR BRAD CAMPBELL // Principal
Emmaus Catholic College
‘It was fantastic to see the change in students, their level of commitment and participation in such a short time frame. This is a testament to the fact that Conviction Group is meeting a desperate need in our society. It also demonstrates the skills and talents of these young leaders who are committing their time and effort to working with other young men to improve our community’
ALAN HASELDON // Liberal Councillor
The Hills Shire Council
I left the forum feeling humbled at the behavior and intelligence of so many men at the outset of their adult lives at a time when unprecedented opportunities come up against big social challenges. Only good things can come from community discussion like this.
CLAUDIA MCEWEN // Founder and MD
The Wake Up Foundation
The small group setting allowed the students to delve more deeply into topics and discuss it with their peers. The forum was a success and I would encourage all schools and communities to get on board with the Young Men’s Health Forum’ .
DAVID O'NEIL // Chief Executive Officer
Castle Hill RSL Group
The forum provided the necessary information in a manner that forced students to self-assess and evaluate their own position. Self-actualisation and realisation is the most powerful learning tool and you and your team managed to achieve this end and as a result there would have been many in the room that you empowered to make better life decisions.
MELANIE MORSON // Group Marketing Manager
Castle Hill RSL Group
‘The forum is an inspirational program changing the lives of young by addressing critical issues. Through this program we have the opportunity as a community to change and empower the lives of young men - our next generation of leaders’
