WHAT MAKES A MAN A MAN – New Male Mentoring Initiative to be launched

The new multi-media male mentoring initiative WHAT MAKES A MAN A MAN is being launched at 11.00am on Thursday 28 March at Junee Correctional Centre, Junee NSW it was announced today.

Designed to inform, educate and inspire, WHAT MAKES A MAN A MAN is an important tool for health institutions, organisations, schools and facilities – offering men of all ages and walks of life an intimate insight into the struggles and successes of Australian male public figures, with the principal aim of helping those men who may not have had positive male mentors in their life.

With contributions by men from across the spectrum of professional, sporting and social contexts, the list of interviewees includes retired High Court Judge Hon. Michael Kirby, Indigenous leader Michael Mundine, Paralympic athlete Curtis Palmer, actor Dean Daley-Jones, singer and youth advocate Angry Anderson, author, journalist and former Wallaby Peter FitzSimons, Artistic Director of Bangarra Dance Theatre Stephen Page, actor/director John Bell and founder of Youth Off The Streets Father Chris Riley to name but a few. Although they come from all walks of life, these well known Australian men have one thing in common – they believe in the importance of male role models for other men.

An initiative of psychologist Agi O’Hara and journalist Andrew L. Urban WHAT MAKES A MAN A MAN has received support and sponsorship from The GEO Group Australia, a leading provider of outsourced correctional services.

With the program available to institutions and individuals, the DVD package of 16 interviews, or downloads of single interviews may be purchased from www.what-makes-a-man.org.au for a financial contribution of $2.50 for individual interviews or $34.95 for the full DVD package. What Makes a Man Inc. is a charitable institution with DGR status ABN 56 063 300 653. All proceeds from program sales are invested in the project.

The launch will be attended by the project initiators as well as interviewees Angry Anderson and Terry O’Connell. Interview opportunities are available prior.
