Whitelion was founded in 1999 by Mark Watt & Glenn Manton. Mark was a manager at Melbourne’s youth detention centre in the ‘90s and becoming increasingly concerned about the ‘revolving door’ – young people who were released would end up back on remand shortly after. The reason was a lack of post-release services to assist those leaving detention to find a purpose in life away from offending. Glenn who was then playing AFL Football with Carlton both agreed the solution was to start Whitelion to find young people jobs and provide them with positive adult role models. .
