Resources and ideas for work

Many of you will already have some plans in mind to get your young people up to their allotted hours.

However, CAFOD and Nugent Care have compiled a few ideas that may give fresh inspiration. The Nugent Care resources can be sent via email by request. The CAFOD resources are below.

Similarly, we at Animate will have a think how we might be able to offer some avenues for young people to be involved in work outside their school or parish through the events we run here.

CAFOD Resources

We know that you have recently launched the Faith in Action CYMFED award in your diocese.

At CAFOD we’ve been involved in the development of the award, and I’m writing to share some resources we’ve pulled together to support young people taking the award, and leaders running reflection sessions.

As you know, an important part of the Faith in Action award is the service to others. We’ve come up with 20 ways for young people to volunteer, from creating and sharing a prayer reflection on justice to planning and running fundraisers.

We also have a guide for leaders delivering the reflection point sections of the programme. There are games, activities, films and prayer and reflection resources to choose from.  

Here’s the webpage: http://cafod.org.uk/Education/Young-people/CYMFED-Faith-in-Action-Award

We’d really appreciate it if you could share these resources with young people an leaders involved in the award in your diocese.

Please feel free to contact me if you’d like any more information.

Many thanks and best wishes,
