At the Jeder Institute our suite of workshops and events are underpinned by a range of strengths-focused, inclusive approaches.

The Jeder Institute partners with organisations who wish to create authentic social change through increased community engagement and participation. Our aim is to engage, inspire and activate not just provide you a report that sits on the shelf.

Our approach will provide your organisation or community with the following benefits:

  • skills and tools to support a connected community
  • community members who are empowered by strengthened relationships
  • an understanding of how social innovation and entrepreneurship can be the catalyst for economic and community development
  • a range of social impact projects
  • a shift in organisational and community mindset to one of positive change and discovery
