Our Charities

The 2019 P² Invitational will support two deserving charities. The funds will be shared equally.


Raw Potential Canberra

Formerly known as Youthcare Canberra, Raw Potential Canberra provides support and assistance for young people that are often extremely isolated and disengaged from the general community. They are young people experiencing homelessness, drug use and mental health issues often stemming from abuse experienced as a child.


Findings show that these young people have issues trusting others and rarely seek or ask for assistance so with funding from the Invitational Raw Potential Canberra will purchase a vehicle which will be stocked with food, water, swags (sleeping bags), laptops for service information and referrals. ‘Going mobile’ will allow them to reach out to vulnerable young people in the community and provide immediate to moderate support including crisis support and emergency relief.

The Fly Program

The Fly Program was founded in 2016 and aims to promote the prevention and control of suicide and mental illness, depression, anxiety and other related disorders amongst Australian men located in the ACT and surrounding region. Currently offering a number of programs aimed to directly assist men with resources to support healthier lives, physical, emotionally, socially and mentally through outdoor programs held in the Snowy Mountains. 

Funding received through the Invitational will directly contribute to funding and supporting men from the ACT and surrounding area, that would otherwise be unable to attend an 8-week ‘Men in Flight’ program in 2019 and 2020. The first component of the program begins with a four day program focused on outdoor activities and intensive sessions to deliver skills and knowledge that will build competence and confidence and an appreciation for the natural environment, whilst gaining mental health support. The second component of the program has individuals participate in a seven-week remote learning module called the ‘Manifesto’ facilitated by The Fly Program facilitators and volunteers.
