Objectives of The Jam Project:
The Jam Project, established in 2016, aims to empower adolescent girls in their transition to adulthood. The Jam Project has identified that providing emotional support 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.
