My BBM trip covered 12 countries, lasted 6 months, 6 dairies, 1 genetics stud, 1 gelato bar and 1000s of cows – what more could you ask for.

It’s hard for me to express just how much I enjoy learning from people, especially about horticulture. That’s the beauty of this award: I was able to be a student again.

Big Brother Movement

BBM Youth Support has a legacy of creating life-changing opportunities through the Big Brother Movement. Over 12,000 young men migrated here for work on the land and in trades between 1925 and 1983. Today we still connect and share experiences and life stories between the Little Brothers who have helped to build Australia.
