For younger volunteers

In many places, work with the poor is considered something for the white hair brigade. Our Society is different!

Started by a rebellious student, St Vincent de Paul Society continues to attract young people around the world. In Australia recently, the Society started a fire under their Catholic youth and St Vinnie's was born. It's taking on and in South Africa we have a growing number of students and young people working in the Society.

Work that counts
Not only is working with the poor an excellent way to develop character, it counts when you apply for jobs, colleges and bursaries.

For anyone who finds life meaningless and trivial, we challenge you to contact a St Vinnie's near you and try some contact with the real world. We guarantee a life change!

How to join
If you are interested in finding out more about St Vinnie's, contact one of the council members near you or ask at your church.

Inspired by the compassion of Jesus Christ, our Mission is lived in the way we work with the poor and disadvantaged – irrespective of race, colour, creed or status.

Our aim is not only to provide immediate support, but to enable those we assist to break free from the cycle of poverty.

Our desire is to empower and enable – a hand up not a handout.
