My name is Nick and I started volunteering with ABOB in Feb 2017. My Rites of Passage weekend was one of the most impactful experiences of my life. It offered me a new way of relating to myself and others and many areas of my life have become more fulfilling as a result. I have enjoyed ‘being a man of the circle’ and the rewards have been far reaching. It has been significant to learn to trust and be trusted by others – both younger & older men alike. Over the last few years, I have mentored several young men and in turn I now support mentors with their mentoring process. I was honoured to be conductor of the Eastbourne circle from August 2020 through to January 2022, and I am truly grateful to be part of a community of men committed to change. I have no doubt that this is exactly where I’m meant to be.
