JAA matches Sudanese families with JAA mentors, encouraging cross-cultural exchange, ongoing friendships and English support. The Encounters program enables us to tailor a learning program to the specific needs of each community member and may include reading and writing, outings, assistance with filling in forms or homework support. Through the encounters program, firm friendships are formed between Sudanese and Jewish participants based on mutual trust and respect.

Where: In home support, Victoria

When:  Time varies according to individual needs and arrangements, while volunteers are required to commit to a minimum six months, most relationships continue for over a year.
