VACANCY: School Volunteer Leeds Deanery

Are you a parent with some free days during the week in school term time? Perhaps you have delivered Children’s Liturgy sessions and would like to support young people learn more about CAFOD in a school setting? We would love to hear from you and support you on an amazing journey into volunteering to raise awareness and support for our work as the Catholic Agency for Overseas Development.

Could you spare a few days a month to visit your local Catholic primary or secondary schools to share with young people updates on justice, international development and faith in action to support people living in the poorest communities.
