Zack Bryers has been a homeless teenager, a soldier in Afghanistan, a gridiron player for Australia, a Churchill Fellow, and now a youth worker.
After leaving home at 15, Zack spent time on the streets, before he set a goal to join the army which turned his life around. He spent tours of duty in Afghanistan before post-traumatic stress disorder saw him medically discharged. Within 18 months Zack was playing for the Australian gridiron team in the World Cup in the United States. He then trained as a youth worker.
With compassion and consistency and drawing on his own experiences, Zack supports and inspires some of our community’s most disadvantaged and disengaged young people.
Here's just some of what we cover in this episode:
