The Cardoner Project is a not-for-profit, student-focused hub for volunteering, founded in 2010 by Jesuit priest, Fr David Braithwaite SJ.


Our Mission

To deepen the human, spiritual and intellectual formation of young adults, grounding them in a love of the poor in the service of the Church.


Our vision

To develop transformative leaders of the Church and society, who will build and shape a more just and Christ-like world.

By providing transformative experiences of service, we are creating Australia’s next generation of leaders as compassionate, faithful and dedicated members of society.
— Fr. David Braithwaite, CEO of The Cardoner Project
