The Scottish Catholic International Aid Fund’s vision is of a world in which all people, especially the poor and oppressed, have the opportunity and the means to live life and live it to the full.
SCIAF’s education resources and our active involvement in schools have always played a key role in what we do. In 2014 we visited over 180 schools speaking to thousands of children and young people on the causes and effects of poverty, encouraging them to take action and thanking them for their generosity. We’re looking to better that number of visits in 2015 but this is only possible with our small but amazing team of volunteers.
We are highly regarded by schools and teachers in what we offer through our educational visits and you could play a key role in educating thousands of children and young people. You will bring them messages of hope and act as a bridge from Scotland to the countries we work with. It’s an exciting, fulfilling role that is integral to SCIAF’s mission.
We are looking for more volunteers across Scotland who have the time to make school visits, have the right qualities to communicate with young people and have a passion for SCIAF’s work. If you’d like to encourage and inspire faith in action with a much loved and trusted organisation, then we want to hear from you.
