Our Team

Meet our team of people dedicated to creating and running programs which promote belonging and well being for young people. 

Jude's Cafe meet our team Taliah


Youth Worker

Hi, I’m Taliah! I’m one of the youth workers here at Jude’s. My role is to plan and help lead our Friday Night Youth Program and our Youth Camps. Can’t wait for the next one! I also co-facilitate our School Programs with Mary. 

I love working with youth because I think that young people are amazing and I want to give them the same love and opportunities for growth I received as a young person. My favourite part of engaging with young people is encouraging them and making them smile.

Jude's Cafe meet our team Mary


Youth Worker

I’m Mary and I’m a Youth Worker  and Community Engagement Pastor. You can find me running our School’s Program in local high schools with grade 9 girls as well as creating and refining our programs, making resources and catching up with people. 
I’m passionate about what I do because I believe that people have great worth and deserve to have big beautiful lives. I want to see girls thrive in life – to empower them with tools to help them know their true worth & strength, to find their community, make great decisions and to go after their dreams! Also, it’s so much FUN!
Jude's Cafe meet our team Jono


Youth Program Coordinator & Sport Chaplain

I’m the co-ordinator of our youth programs here at Judes and have worked with young people for over a decade. 
I love seeing youth thrive but am saddened by the fact that too many are struggling and are unwell. 
We are on a mission to change this.

Operations Manager & Sport Chaplain

Hi, I’m Caleb and I have an operational role here at Jude’s and Tailrace, with an aim to support all of our staff members and see everyone succeeding and growing in their roles.

I also help out at the Launceston Football Club providing chaplaincy and welfare support.

I am very passionate about seeing young people thrive, there are so many barriers in our society that are preventing young people from thriving and I feel privileged to work at an organisation dedicated to seeing those barriers erased.

I am so excited to use this position to support our current staff cohort, and all those who will enter our workplace in the future.

I find great joy in helping others to succeed so I cannot wait to see what our youth can achieve!
