We currently have a small team of school volunteers who deliver assemblies and workshops in their local schools . They help children and young people learn about Global Poverty and inspire them to take action.The hours are flexible and will involve visiting schools on weekdays so some degree of availability during the week is needed. The time you commit is flexible depending on your preference and the needs of the schools you visit. One visit a month might be a realistic expectation.

Full training and support is given by CAFOD, with training happening three times a year. Expenses are covered too.

“It’s a lovely team of people,’ said Martin from CAFOD Arundel and Brighton, ‘who are a delight to work with. They are people who use their talents (or learn some new ones) so freely and joyfully in support of CAFOD and local schools in the hope of building a better world. My wish is that we had a few more to join the team, especially in Surrey.

“We would do what we can to support them and our existing volunteers would accompany them in their first few visits until they were happy to go in alone.

“Some are retired teachers but not all. Whoever has the willingness to learn and desire to build a better world could make a good School Volunteer.”
