12 Buckets believes all men, whether or not they have children of their own, can make a difference in the lives of children and young adults by being positive role models ...
This year, we can answer the "Why 12?" question. Not only that, but the answer doesn't involve linguistic gymnasts to make it stick. The 'why' fits as though it was tailored; it's far from being a single season garment or even undersized activewear sold by Red Dot. The answer to "Why 12?" feels ready for a lifetime's wear.
"Like any organisation, we need to maintain our sustainability - especially in such tight economic times," says Travis Fitch, CEO of 12 Buckets. "While we would love to see our unique program rolled out in as many places as possible, we want to make sure we can go the distance.

Meet Rohit, 12 Buckets' second Young Ambassador for 2017. Rohit has become an integral and valued member of the 12 Buckets community, and we're rapt that, instead of saying goodbye, we have the privilege of continuing to walk alongside and partner with him as he heads off to high school. As he graduates from primary school, he is a markedly different young man than the nervous boy who first walked into the 12 Buckets room in 2014.
As 2016 draws to a close, 12 Buckets will farewell a number of students as they graduate from primary school and head off to high school.
Now, money raised from our Bassendean on the Green concert will enable 12 Buckets to expand its program into high schools in 2017. This will mean that, instead of saying goodbye, we'll be able to continue walking alongside students through their teenage years.
Another new initiative is our Junior Ambassador program and it's our great delight to introduce one of our inaugural ambassadors ...
Bassendean on the Green will be jammed packed with a stellar line-up of Perth music acts. Be treated to the melodic harmonies of Darling; the powerful vocals of EDDE; junk percussion and brass street band Junkadelic; incredible blues guitarist and vocalist, Andrew Winton, and Peaty & Neat (featuring Trevor Jalla).
So I'm almost through the book Never Eat Alone by Ferrazzi as part of my pre-work for the next session of The Growth Project. While there are some excellent insights throughout about the importance of developing and tending to networks of mutual generosity, it's what Ferrazzi said up front that really caught my attention:
Term 3 is off to an exciting start, with 12 Buckets celebrating a newly formed partnership with Boyare Primary School, as well as welcoming Tim Rutter, our newest staff member, who will be based at Boyare, as School Liaison.
12 Buckets have a new toy.
Only it's not really a toy. It's a microscope.
But it doesn't look like one you'd expect to find in a science lab ...
