He is both the CEO of Spur Projects – a NFP working in the area of men’s mental health and suicide prevention – and Assemblus – a NFP working to amplify sustainable social impact within organisations.
Lee is an alumnus of IYF’s Global Laureate Fellowship, FYA’s Young Social Pioneer and The Do School’s Global Changemaker programs. He is the recipient of the Australasian Men’s Health Forum’s Youth Contribution Award and was recently named as one of The Cusp’s young people on the cusp of greatness.
