Meet Joseph Te Puni-Fromont - Westfield Local Heroes 2021

Preparing young people for work

Everthing Suarve Inc.
Kind. Selfless. Devoted

Joseph Te Puni-Fromont is helping young people in his community turn their lives around and find employment.

He is the co-founder of Everything Suarve, a non-profit organisation that embraces disengaged youth, reformed prisoners and First Nations People, most of whom are referred by the police or courts.

Joseph and his team take participants through a 10-week Big Brother program that includes Australian Government FSK workforce-ready certificates. He and his partner Daniel Grace nurture everyone according to their learning style, behaviour and wellbeing needs.

“I grew up with very little,” says Joseph, who as a teenager lost six friends to drugs, car accidents and suicide. He is giving back because of the people who helped him rise above his circumstances.

Joseph is known for his selfless hard work. He is available to students day and night and provides a family-like environment filled with love and laughter. Many of his students have never had someone that believes in them, and Joseph and the team are devoted to changing that.

Joseph appreciates being recognised by his community and nominated as a Westfield Local Hero. “I like to see myself as a good role model or someone young people can aspire to be like. Helping as many young people as possible and seeing them grow motivates me every day.”

Westfield Local Heroes are nominated and voted for by their communities, with the three top finalists per Westfield centre each awarded a $10,000 grant for their affiliated organisation. Everything Suarve will use its funds to buy laptops, go cards for students and stationery.
