The Footsteps of Frederic (FOF) Program is a leadership and formation experience with Vinnies Victoria for young people in their first year out of school. In the program, participants will meet like-minded individuals, explore social justice learning and gain lifelong memories through serving those in need in Vinnies programs.

The Footsteps of Frederic Program is a practical development opportunity for young people passionate about social justice to explore their faith and grow as a leader. The program will develop young leaders annually through exploring and living the Vincentian charism. The charism asks a person to see Christ in the poor and marginalised, to be one with the poor, to serve with humility, authenticity, and without judgment, and to give of one’s self, rather than the simple provision of material assistance.

This program is an opportunity to engage in St Vincent de Paul Society works and community but above all, it is an opportunity to be a leader.
