Want to change the world?

Applications are now open for this year’s “Step into the Gap” programme that starts in September 2011.  This is a fantastic year-out opportunity working with children and young people in the UK.

This could be an adventure that will change you and those around you – your journey begins and ends in the UK, but takes you to one of the poorest countries in the world to meet amazing people and share their lives. You will then use those experiences when you return to lead young people to a better understanding of how their faith helps them take action for change.

Step into the Gap offers a rounded experience, giving you the chance to volunteer overseas and in the UK, allowing you to explore and express your faith. It bridges the “gap” between adventure and new experiences while offering something to a wider community.

We currently have places available at St Marys School in Blackpool (Lancaster), the Youth Ministry Team in Consett (Hexham & Newcastle) and Just Youth in Salford.

You can find out more information and an application form here.

If you have any specific queries you can contact our leadership development co-ordinator at youngleadership@cafod.org.uk

Places are limited and the deadline is fast approaching — the closing date for all applications is 22nd August 2011.
