Changing the lives of young people

Several months ago my family agreed that our charity of preference was to be the Bridge Builders Group. This is an outstanding not for profit organisation based in the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne that is reliant on financial support from local businesses and community members to support the local youth.

Last weekend I had the privlidge of joining a group of young men (ages 16-22) on a camping trip to Bonnie Doon in the capacity of a mentor as part of the Bridge Builders boys to men program. I was joined by several other mentors.

Activities included four wheel driving, yarding/crutching/drenching/tailing sheep, team building activities, searching for old gold mines and sharing yarns of wisdom around the camp fire.

As a mentor my role is to help change the lives of others for the better. I can honestly say it is a two way street as the weekend experience has certainly made a difference to mine.

Mortgage Choice Knox and my family is a proud sponsor of Bridge Builders.So remember, with every loan settled with Mortgage Choice Knox, you too are assisting in changing the lives of young people in Eastern Melbourne.
