Frequently asked questions


Who is this program for? The program is for young men aged 16-24 who want to improve the quality of their lives. Amongst other topics, the program encourages discussion on key issues such as alcohol and drug usage, disengagement from education or employment, gambling and risk-taking behaviours, and so will benefit young men who are interested in understanding or overcoming these issues in a judgement-free space with the guidance of positive mentors. Is Building Blokes WDO registered? Yes, Building Blokes is a registered Work & Development Order (WDO) program. If you are or a young man you know is under the age of 25 and eligible, accrued fines can be reduced by up to $2,000 upon completion of the program in New South Wales (for detailed information, contact us at 1300 450 850 or visit the Revenue NSW website), or by $1,000 per month in Queensland (for detailed information, contact us or visit the State Penalties Enforcement Registry website). Does a young man have to complete the whole program? Credits are made for sessions attended. Once registered, it's better to complete the program and gain a certificate of completion, which looks great on a résumé and provides proof of completion for those with court matters. Can you deliver Building Blokes as a 1-day program? We can conduct in- or out-of-house Building Blokes programs, which can be tailored to suit your service or workplace requirements. For more information or to make a booking, contact us at 1300 450 850. How can we refer people to the program?
