Opportunities for young adults to serve and gain life enhancing experiences

The Cardoner Project is a not-for-profit, Young Adult-focused hub for volunteering, founded in 2010. We seek to engage Young Adults in a conscientious community that involves itself in supporting disadvantaged communities at home. The Pillars of the Project provide opportunities to come together to grow, learn to question and contribute in different ways. We seek to embed in Young Adults an understanding and respect for all and a lifelong commitment to involvement in volunteering.

The Cardoner Project offers opportunities to commit to  short and long-term volunteer placements with our partner communities at home and abroad.

These include our Nepal immersions and long-term in-community CVC placements to Thailand, the Northern Territory, Tonga and more.

Our With-Community programmes provide opportunities to come together with other Young Adults in a community environment to explore the essential issues in today’s world, inviting an integration of intellectual, affective, social and religious dimensions. 

This includes Bellarmine House.


The Cardoner Project’s local programmes provide opportunities to contribute to efforts that support local and offshore communities on the margins.

These include The Two Wolves Community Cantina, our Sunday Outreach program and XLC Thai tutoring online.
