Charity Work

Jon moved to the Sunshine Coast over 19 ago and commenced his work as a telephone Crisis Counsellor. His community work has grown and has taken him to Kenya and now more locally in Queensland working in the area of suicide prevention for young men.

Jon’s family visited Africa in 2010 with a goal to be involved in some volunteer work to educate his children in the importance of community work. Jon, with his colleague and friend James Douglas, travelled to Kenya 3 times since 2011 to facilitate workshops in the areas of Personal Mastery, Team Development & Leadership workshops for Nyumbani who provide education and care to HIV affected orphans. Recently he facilitated a series of 4 day Sustainable Leadership Programs which ultimately empowered leaders in the organisation to facilitate their own on-going Development Programs.

Jon is currently focused on Marcus Mission which is a new suicide prevention program in partnership with Wesley Mission Queensland.Marcus Mission aims to reduce the risk of suicide for young men aged 18 to 25 years through three main initiatives – skill building for young men, suicide prevention training for the wider community, and the development of a volunteer mentor network.
