CAFOD is seeking to recruit enthusiastic School Volunteers in Plymouth who are passionate about telling our stories of faith, hope and charity to young people in schools across the diocese. In support of this, School Volunteer training will be taking place in the diocese over the coming weeks.
On 9 February and 23 March CAFOD will be hosting School Volunteer training in order to prepare our fantastic team of School Volunteers to go into Plymouth schools and spread the stories of the excellent work CAFOD does to fight poverty and injustice across the globe.
School Volunteers, such as Bea Taylor (pictured) are integral to CAFOD’s work in the diocese. Bea and her colleagues inform and enthuse both pupils and teachers in our community’s schools in support of our vital work. For instance, this Lent, our School Volunteers will be discussing with young people the importance of this time of year and how the theme of fasting can inspire charitable action. They will tell the story of our transformative projects, such as Florence’s fish farm in Zambia as they illustrate how Catholics can put their faith into action through supporting our work.
CAFOD Plymouth is in need of more volunteers who can help expand this excellent work. We need enthusiastic communicators who are comfortable working with children and young people and can use technology (video, powerpoint, etc) to deliver presentations. On average, it can take as little as 4 hours a month to support CAFOD with this work. Our volunteers get a lot of satisfaction visiting schools and bringing a unique perspective to the classroom environment.
