Vinnies was founded by a 20 year old student named Frederic Ozanam over 170 years ago. It was established by youth in the spirit of youth and this compassionate outlook, enthusiasm and vision continues today in Australia.
Vinnies Youth is the name for the inspiring young people who volunteer for the St Vincent de Paul Society Australia. There are thousands of young people who every day share their time, care for humanity and energy to make a difference in the lives of disadvantaged people all around Australia.
Vinnies Youth is a broad term encompassing all ages and groups of volunteers including Young Adults, College Conferences (High School and Colleges) and Mini Vinnies (Primary Schools).
There are many exciting programs and activities happening in every state and territory, so why not see what you can do to enrich the lives of others and sign up to volunteer (click here)! You will find the experience of helping people rewarding, fun, invigorating and the best decision you will ever make!
