What We Do
To achieve our mission, we currently run the following programs and activities:
The Jam Project is a NFP pilot girls mentoring project under the auspices of NCJWA (Vic) commencing in 2017.
The program pairs Year 9 (age 14-16) Jewish girls with a buddy between 19-25 years old. Our buddies, young, accomplished, determined and motivated women who are engaged in the community will stand as role models for teenage girls during a pivotal and formative time of their lives.
The Jam Project aims to empower teenage girls, provide them with a sense of independence, confidence and motivation. We want young girls in our community to embrace their unique qualities, to follow their dreams and to one day be future role models!
Caring Mums is a home-based, non-denominational free service that provides emotional support to mums of newborn babies and women during pregnancy. Since commencement in 2011, our trained volunteers have supported over 80 women from diverse backgrounds. More...
