CAFOD has now started recruitment for the third year of Step into the Gap.
This programme offers an exciting year-out opportunity to young adults aged 18-30 allowing them to link faith with action while encouraging others to act for positive change.
Successful candidates spend 10 months with either St Mary’s College in Blackpool, the Youth Ministry team in Hexham and Newcastle or Just Youth in Salford with a specific remit to raise global issues and promote social justice (using CAFOD resources). In addition to these placements the young adults will spend several weeks in the Global South, experiencing first-hand the challenges and opportunities faced by people in some of the poorest countries in the world. The programme receives support from the Society of the Holy Child Jesus.
Step into the Gap is a fantastic programme and has its own web page at: www.cafod.org.uk/stepintothegap where there is more information and from where application forms can be downloaded.
