Schools can engage with and assist the St Vincent de Paul Society in many ways. Our programs and sessions help to deepen a child’s understanding of social justice by seeing the needs of people in their own neighbourhood and beyond.

Many schools will combine learning about and supporting the Society with units of inquiry. This includes units relating to social justice, community and volunteering. Vinnies encourages school communities to live their faith through action using the ‘See’, ‘Think’ ‘Do’ and ‘Reflect Model.
