The Jack Beasley Foundation (JBF) is a registered not-for-profit community-based organisation based on the Gold Coast. JBF's primary focus is to deliver knife crime education and drive change around youth violence. On the 13th December 2019, 17 year old Jack Beasley was fatally stabbed at Surfers Paradise and his parents Belinda and Brett deliver the One Moment Education Program to schools to share and educate youth on the dangers of carrying a knife and the long term effects of youth violence on the offenders, victims, and indirect parties including friends and families.
The Foundation is continuing to work with Queensland Police presenting our One Moment Presentation. Belinda and Brett started presenting the education program in July 2021 at schools in Ipswich, Logan, Brisbane and Gold Coast and have continued this work in 2022 getting out to more schools in these areas including Northern New South Wales. To date, we have completed 23 presentations to schools and we will continue presenting in more schools in 2023 and hoping to expand into other areas in Queensland such as Townsville and Cairns, New South Wales and Victoria.
This one-hour school presentation with direct interaction with Brett and Belinda Beasley sharing their experience and will show first-hand how a family’s life can change in “One Moment” of senseless violence whilst promoting better decisions and choices. A Queensland Police Officer will deliver further information in relation to knife legislation and rules of carrying knives and awareness around becoming a victim of knife violence.
We will continue to work hard on our education program and our goal is to look back in 10, 15, 20 years and know that through this education program, we have made a substantial difference in the community and honor Jack's name.
