Why join Youth SSVP?
Youth SSVP gives you a chance to put your faith into action. You will meet like-minded people and learn about yourself and the world that you live in.
Perhaps you’re not entirely sure what faith means to you right now? By serving others, you not only learn about yourself and develop your skills and confidence, but you can also learn about what it means to be a Catholic.
Are you working towards a Caritas Award? Joining the Youth SSVP gives you an excellent option for achieving the goals of the Caritas Award. You might be organising appeals or events in your school, or you could be working closely with the local SSVP parish Conference. Whatever the work, it is always a positive experience.
Of course joining the SSVP means that you are helping people in need in our communities, but it also helps you! Volunteering is a great way to get experience that can be very useful when you are applying for a job or for further education- it shows that you are committed and responsible. This isn’t the number 1 reason for you to volunteer, but it is a great benefit!
