Why get involved
How might your life have been different if, when you were a young man uncertain about something you could not begin to explain, or overwhelmed by the power of your own emotion, that there had been a place where you could sit with older men who would acknowledge your anger and confusion and witness your truth without advice or judgment?
How might your life have been different if, as a young man struggling to find out who you were, you knew of a place where you could ground yourself – a place of safety where you were recognised and confirmed and would find support, appropriate challenge and truth?
How might life have been different if, when you were at odds with authority or your closest friends, there had been a place for you where your dreams and aspirations could be received and listened to by a circle of men you respected – men who had worked deeply with the truth of their own lives?
Abandofbrothers believe the answer to many of our social challenges lies largely dormant at a local level. Time and again we've seen incredible transformations when adult men step up and reach out a hand to young men who may be struggling. The simple message of 'I see you' and 'I believe in you' is sometimes all it takes for a young man to begin to turn their lives around.
