We’re here to organize activities and stuff that you’ll really enjoy for boys aged 6 to 12 years old. You can hang out with other boys, meet men who we call ‘uncles’ and learn new stuff. So have a look through this month’s newsletter and see if there’s anything you’d like to do and let us know.
If there’s an activity you’d like to do that you are interested in or if you wish to know more about Uncle then contact us and let us know. If we can do it, we’ll plan it! Or you can get mum, dad or your guardian to read and fill in the forms below. Over to you…
If you’re a Mum who has a son between the ages of 6 and 12 who doesn’t have a dad around or has little contact with men on a day-to-day basis, The Uncle Project could help you. Mums often say that they love doing activities with their boys but there are some things they just can’t do (or are really bad at!) and they appreciate the help the men at Uncle can provide to do stuff like building billy carts, clay pigeon shooting, rock climbing and just generally chatting about boy stuff!
If you think your boy could benefit from hanging out with the Uncle team contact us
Thank you for expressing an interest in having your son(s) become part of Uncle. In doing so you have taken the first step towards bringing him in contact with positive male role models who give up their valuable time to help young boys on their journey to manhood.
“Inspirational! The kind of modest and low key yet powerful program that can have a huge effect. Uncle is a brilliant idea for getting more good men into the lives of children. Everyone benefits, and youngsters have better lives as a result”.
- Steve Biddulph
The next step in the process is for you to become a member of our organisation. The main reason for this is so that your boy is covered by our insurance during activities.
Membership costs $5 per financial year (if this cost is prohibitive please do not hesitate to contact our office and we will be happy to come to some other arrangement). Please read all the information, fill in and submit the form below.
Once you are a member your boy(s) is welcome to join us at any of our activities. Keep in mind that space is sometimes limited and they often fill up quickly. If you are seeking a one-on-one relationship for your boy, activities are the best place for him to meet men and make a natural connection. At present we largely rely on activities to provide the process by which men and boys form mentoring friendships. Due to the nature of our program we always have more boys looking for mentors than men able to mentor them and for this reason we cannot guarantee individual mentoring to everyone.
For more information please don’t hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you once again for recognising, on your son’s behalf, the great need for men to be a part of his life.
