Current Board members

Giuliana Baggoley Appointed August 2011

Jack Manning Bancroft Appointed August 2011

Sibylla Budd Appointed August 2006

Giuliana Baggoley is an optometrist in clinical practice and is also employed as clinical policy adviser for Optometrists Association Australia.

At 19 years of age and in the third year of his media and communications degree, Jack founded the Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience (AIME), partnering 25 Indigenous and non-Indigenous university student volunteer mentors with 25 Indigenous students from Alexandria Park Community School in a pilot program.

Sibylla Budd grew up in Canberra and moved to Melbourne to study acting at the Victorian College of the Arts, where she graduated with a degree in dramatic art.

Giuliana has previously served on the Optometrist Association of Australia Boards and she is currently involved with her local P&C Association. The majority of her professional life has been spent in rural and regional Australia and she now lives in Canberra where she is married with two young children. Giuliana’s interests include health, and following media and the arts. Giuliana thrives on community involvement. “I am interested in people’s stories and I value how different experiences and lifestyles enrich a community.”

Jack has since become the CEO of AIME and in 2011 the program now operates out of 10 universities across New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria. Heading up a group of 35 full-time staff, Jack and the team are currently working with close to 1000 university student volunteers who mentored over 1000 Indigenous high school students in 2011. The program is currently increasing the Indigenous rates of school completion and university admission across the East Coast of Australia – to the point where some of the sites are already exceeding local and national averages. At 26 years of age Jack’s vision is to see Indigenous high school students finishing school and entering universities at the same rate as their fellow Australians.

Since then, Sibylla has shot to prominence with her role in the Australian drama, The Secret Life of Us, and Australian feature film The Bank. Her other television work has included roles in The Farm, All Saints, Something In The Air, Kath and Kim, Sea Patrol and Canal Road. Sibylla’s film credits include September, The Bank, The Book of Revelation and The Bet, for which she was nominated for an AFI award for best supporting actress in 2007. Sibylla has also worked solidly in theatre with the Melbourne Theatre Company, Company B (Belvoir street theatre), The Griffin and Newtheatricals. Sibylla is married and has a son who was born in 2011.

Jack was the 2010 NSW Young Australian of The Year, and has recently been awarded the Young People’s Australian Human Rights Medal. Jack was also the University of Sydney’s 2010 Young Alumni of the Year.
