Objectives of The Jam Project:
The Jam Project aims to empower adolescent females in their transition to adulthood. The Jam Project has identified that providing emotional support and connection during adolescence can foster a sense of self-worth, self-belief and independence. The program will address pivotal stages and topics that often require support during the teenage years. Echoing the vision of NCJWA Vic, ‘powering women and girls for a better world’, The Jam Project aspires to strengthen and empower young women in their development, fostering future leaders.

What you will get out of the program:
- The opportunity to build a secure and trusting relationship with a female buddy between the ages of 21-28 years old
- Someone who can listen to you without passing judgement
- Someone who can act as a sounding board to help you navigate the following areas: personal, social, school and community involvement
- Be inspired by someone outside your inner circle who has successfully managed situations in their own lives and can provide you with a different perspective on working through obstacles
- Increase self-confidence and enhance personal awareness and resilience
