Quick info on The Man Cave...
The Man Cave started in 2014 creating spaces for young men to take off the mask, feel safe for the first time, to talk openly about what's really going on in their lives with each other.
And to do that with healthy male role models, that can hold that space for them and can take them through Rites of Passage... to grow and learn and start to explore the questions and topics they always wished they could...but haven't been the given the space, permission or tools to do it with.
The Man Cave has worked with almost 40,000 young men across Australia. With incredible facilitators supporting boys from Year 7 to Year 10 in high schools for a full day.
Matt shares more about his own work within The Man Cave and how the program works... And his own insights into his personal growth.
