CatholicCare is a not-for-profit organisation that provides a vast range of services to meet the needs of vulnerable individuals and families within the community. Since 1985, CatholicCare has been conducting an initiative called ‘Family Week’ in mid may, which aims to promote and celebrate the importance of family as a key component of a healthy society. Schools sign up to engage with family week through awareness raising and promotion, classroom learning and fundraising activities.
The community engagement placement or volunteering opportunity requires two students to get in contact (via the phone or face to face) with schools who registered to participate in Family Week 2018 to evaluate the initiative in mid may. Students would then present schools with a certificate of participation. The opportunity requires a student commitment of 35 hours to undertake the project, however the hours and days can be flexible.
What are the benefits?
Great experience within a community organisation.
Excellent reference for your CV.
Students and volunteers would undertake interview and process with CatholicCare HR team.
