Involve Your School

The St Vincent de Paul Society offers opportunities for teachers and students to support their local community and engage in the Vincentian way of living.  Primary schools can get involved with the Mini Vinnies program while Secondary School Conferences and projects are offered to middle school and senior years. The Society encourages school communities to live their faith through action using the ‘See’ (education and awareness), ‘Think’ (formation and reflection) and ‘Do’ (community service and fundraising) model.

Primary schools

Mini Vinnies empowers primary school students to become advocates within their school and local community by putting their values into action.  They meet regularly to learn about social justice issues, develop leadership skills and engage with the wider St Vincent de Paul Society. 

Secondary schools

Secondary School Conferences empower students to recognise, reflect and respond to causes of human injustice through advocacy and action in their local communities.  They meet regularly to explore ways of achieving a more just and compassionate society, develop leadership skills and engage with the wider St Vincent de Paul Society.
