Programme Outline

Programme Outline

Here is an overview of the programme we run for the volunteers:

Dates:

The programme runs from September through June

Housing: 
Volunteers live in accommodation provided by the Charity. The house supplies the basics for daily living including a computer and internet access.

We operate in various communities within the UK, are current established communities are in Manchester and Liverpool.

Commitment: 
Volunteers try to create a community – a faith community – where each person is respected and valued.

Size:  
There are usually three or four in a community, where household duties and responsibilities are shared, and each one cares for the others.

Placements: 
Each volunteer has at least one placement in whichever city they are assigned, working for 30 hours a week, with people who are disadvantaged in some way. A second placement is available to most volunteers occupying less hours but which gives another opportunity for the volunteer to use their gifts and talents, and to have more to share with the others.

The difference: 
This is a “faith” year as well as a gap year, and all volunteers share their faith with each other and continue to deepen their relationship with God. As part of the input of the year, several weekends are arranged - a time for development and relaxation.

I found my year with the Vincentian volunteers as the best learning phase in my life, so far. Through that year, I learnt more about my self through other people. We might see those we serve as vulnerable. But in fact through them I found out that I am the more vulnerable one, and through them I learnt how to appreciate life and live it gratefully . The Vincentian Volunteer programme introduced me to many new experiences and knowledge, which have had a lot of impact in my life after the programme. I currently work for the UN agency for refugees, and I would not make it if I had not joined the Vincentian Volunteers which gave me the opportunity to meet some refugees within the people we served.
