About Boys to the Bush

Based in regional communities throughout NSW and now Victoria, Boys to the Bush is a community-based charity that focuses on preventative and early intervention strategies for disengaged young males aged 9-22 years.

It has a proven history of being able to engage with and improve outcomes for vulnerable youth and offers a range of programs aimed at “supporting the boys to become better men in the future.”

In just five years this grassroots organisation has impacted thousands of lives of regional youth experiencing trauma and disadvantage. Their goal is “to change the futures of 130,000 high-risk youth by 2030”.
