Laps for Life

This March, challenge yourself and swim to save lives. Whether you're new to the water or a competitive swimmer, you can get involved in Laps for Life in any way that suits you. You can swim laps at your local pool, hit the beach or take part in an ocean swim! Set a goal that suits you, and use our handy lap calculator to decide how many sessions you'll need. You don’t need to swim every day, just pick the days and times that suit your lifestyle. Whether it’s freestyle, backstroke, butterfly or doggy-paddle, just get swimming. Laps for Life takes place from 1–31 March, and you can swim at any time throughout the month. Funds raised via Laps for Life support the work of youth mental health service ReachOut.

Mentoring Men is a registered Australian charity providing free long-term one-to-one life mentoring programs for men Australia wide. We focus on a proactive approach, engaging Australian men who need help before they spiral into crisis.

Our definition of The Mentoring Men Mentor: "A Mentor is someone who will listen, encourage, and support self-guidance and personal growth in another, whilst maintaining their own self-care”. Training outcome: Understand how the Mentor role is to listen without judgement Learn the value of good questions and how to avoid ‘fixing’ Experience mentorship from the perspective of both Mentor and Mentee About the training course: The Mentor training course is in person at our Manly venue. In this interactive workshop you will work as an individual, in small groups and as a whole group. Mentor Foundation Training brings together a group of like-minded men to explore volunteer mentoring and benefit from sharing ideas and experiences. There is some self-paced e-learning (60-90 mins) to complete prior to the workshop.
