The Jam Project

The Jam Project is a program for Year 9 girls. It’s an opportunity to build your confidence, self-esteem and leadership skills. So, if you’re interested in discovering more about yourself, exploring relationships and finding inspiration, please get in touch. 

How We've Adapted During COVID-19

And who knows, you might come back as a buddy yourself in just a few years!

Monthly Jam Sessions

Our Jam Sessions cover different topics every year – but here’s a snapshot of what we’ve explored in the past:

Jam Sessions also create the opportunity for you to meet and connect with other participants.
