Jackie Ruddock will spend her Paid Charity Leave as the first employee for The Social Outfit. (http://thesocialoutfit.org)
The Social Outfit will establish itself as a new fashion label, shop and café in Sydney's Inner West that provides education, skills and employment for young refugees and promotes the rich creativity of our refugee communities.
Jackie's goals are to bring her start-up strategy to life and open up the doors to The Social Outfit during her Paid Charity leave year. Her focus will be to develop the skills and talents of the young people from refugee backgrounds to create a local brand as well as to develop their education and employment opportunities.
