Rudder is the mentoring program of the Artful Dodgers Studios. It has been established for young artists who have been engaged at the Artful Dodgers Studios and wish to further develop their art practice.
Rudder matches established visual artists (mentors) with young people with a passion for art (mentees) to work together in a mentoring partnership. Mentor - mentee partnerships are primarily matched by art form.
Where are we
Jesuit Social Services programs are located in a number of regions in metropolitan Melbourne and in Western Sydney.
What makes us unique?
Jesuit Social Services works to build a just society by advocating for social change and promoting the health and wellbeing of disadvantaged young people, families and communities.
In all our services our goal is to enable people to connect with others so they can take an active part in the community. Only when people form relationships can they come to trust again. When they trust, they may imagine new possibilities and pursue them.
What we are looking for?
We are looking for people who feel connected to our mission and values as an organisation. We would like to work with people who can see that to make things better for others we need to come together and assist those in need and be part of our community.
