The Cardoner Project

The Cardoner Project, an initiative of the Australian Jesuits, a Catholic social enterprise for the young, driven by young people, that engages with communities overseas in projects that seek to express a recognition and respect for disadvantaged and excluded groups. The Immersion Program aims to build hope in the communities we encounter. In the process it is we who are transformed. The Two Wolves: Abroad is our new brand for the particular work of offering Immersion programs which are 2-3 week experiences of service and cultural exposure, working in basic conditions, with shared prayer and reflections everyday. Students learn from the local community, visit cultural sites, and volunteer on a meaningful service project working as close with the local people as possible. The Cardoner Volunteer Corps (CVC) offers school leavers a deeper immersion with a preference for a full year placement, and in places associated with the work of the Society of Jesus. Our volunteers teach English language and numeracy, or other service-oriented tasks. Two Wolves Cantina is our flagship social hub. It is a welcoming, volunteer-driven social enterprise eatery and bar offering simple street food menu and a common desire to serve others, find community and share meaning.
