‘VOLUNTEERING VOCATIONS’, A GAP YEAR SCHEME FOR YOUNG ADULTS AGED 18 – 25, has been running since 2015, and has proved a positive and inspiring experience for volunteers and their placement congregations alike.

The programme offers a fantastic opportunity for young people to gain experience of the different types of work within a parish or project in a supported environment, whilst exploring any potential call to serve the Church in the long term. A short film about the scheme can be viewed at: https://www.tomorrowscalling.org/first-steps/volunteering/
