Are you looking to make your life meaningful? Are you looking for an avenue to make a difference in the lives of young people? Then you are at the right place… Look at Don Bosco as your model.
As a teenager, the little Johnny Bosco would entertain, educate and evangelise the young people around him through stories, tricks, games and catechism classes. As a young priest, he offered his services – with enthusiasm and passion – at the ‘Oratory’. Right from a young age, Don Bosco was a priest for others! His eagerness to help the young become ‘good Christians and honest citizens’ became his life’s long passion and commitment. Moved by deep faith, he made a generous choice in favour of the young. He would often say, “For you, I study; for you, I work; for you, I live; for you, I am ready to give the rest of my life!”
You too can make your life meaningful and significant by moving out to the peripheries – to live in places of insecurity and uncertainty – to be close to the young people, especially who are poor and abandoned.
Don Bosco Volunteers is a platform for you to make this choice in favour of the young. The Salesians of Don Bosco journey with the young in 134 countries across the globe. The Salesian Province of Mumbai has 28 institutions in the states of Maharashtra, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan. We offer services in schools, parishes, technical institutes, homes for the young at risk, animation centres, youth centres and oratories.
How could you help? Our Salesian presences offer you vast avenues to accompany the young through – coaching in sports, computer studies, spoken English, evening classes, music and dance, art and craft, drama and public speaking, robotics, health and hygiene, eco-spirituality, human rights and advocacy, value education, skills development and faith formation. Are you still looking for something different? We will offer you the opportunity!
You could volunteer for a short term (one to three months) or for a longer period of time.
