CAFOD volunteer Jo Woodhead

Hello, my name is Jo Woodhead and I’m an education volunteer for CAFOD.

That sounds like a grand title doesn’t it! Let me explain.

Being an education volunteer is a fantastic role, it is simply going into local Catholic schools and delivering assemblies or workshops to the children. Now the really great thing about it is that all the material for the assembly is prepared for you by the lovely people who work full time for CAFOD – all you have to do is turn up and deliver it!

Here in the Leeds diocese we have great support from the office which includes training sessions for all the assemblies- these sessions are a great time to get together with other volunteers to share good ideas (and anxieties if we have them.) In Leeds we have a great team, but would love to have new members amongst us. Could this be you? The level of commitment varies and you don’t need to have worked in a school for this role as training is given.

If you would like to find out more you can either email me at jowoodhead1@gmail.com or Joanne Taylor at jtaylor@cafod.org.uk. You can also reach Joanne by phone at 01132 759302.
