Founded in Albury-Wodonga in by three passionate teachers, the organisation runs camps and activities for disengaged and underprivileged male youths across regional NSW, down to the Victorian border. The not-for-profit has recently opened a facility in Forbes' town centre, providing a hub to cater for the growing demand within the region. Upon learning about the mission of Boys to Bush, local staff at CommBank's Forbes branch nominated the organisation to receive funding to help set up the new facility. The grant will also help to fund a permanent online platform, after coronavirus social distancing restrictions saw their face-to-face programs come to a halt. With the vast majority of participants residing in out-of-home care with complex living conditions, the concerning lack of contact during lockdown inspired their latest initiative. Boys to the Bush joins more than other recipients across Australia to receive one of grants being awarded by the CommBank Staff Foundation.

Unlike the teens of my generation, who might have spent an evening tying up the family landline with gossip, they talk on Snapchat, the smartphone app that allows users to send pictures and videos that quickly disappear.
I look at my single male doctor colleagues and some of them are sweet and honestly looking for a connection. To me, life is all about growthвso ask yourselfвwill I grow more staying single and focusing my life on the church, or will I grow more branching out, looking at life from different perspectives, and allowing myself to see options I have not yet considered.
