Caritas Ambassadors

What are the Caritas Ambassadors?


Caritas Ambassadors is a programme for both primary and secondary schools which aims to equip pupils with a strong understanding of Catholic Social Teaching and how we can put it into action in our daily lives. 


The programme runs through six key themes of Catholic Social Teaching and helps the trainee Ambassadors to think about social justice issues in our local community, before taking them through responding by developing and running their own social action project.


The Caritas Ambassadors are leaders of social action in our school, and responsible for sharing what they have learnt with those around them. They share their increased understanding of the issues faced by our local community, and how they and their fellow pupils can address these to create a fairer society. 


The Caritas Ambassadors develop their own ideas, and taking responsibility for creating and running their social action projects themselves. They use the Give, Act, Share, Pray model to design their project, looking at how they can give their time and skills to act to support those in need, and sharing this work with others through awareness raising and prayer.  


The Letter is a groundbreaking new film by the Laudato Si' Movement. This grand documentary brings Pope Francis' vision of integral ecology to life, finding new hope together. Host a screening in your parish with its excellent accompanying resources #Cop27 #Cop27

Today we had the interviews for the Caritas Ambassadors after the tough job of reading all the amazing application letters. We were very lucky that Mr Johnson- our chair of governors- was able to join us for the interviews!

Our first meeting as Caritas Ambassadors discussing and preparing all the social justice issues we would like to tackle ready for our presentation and commissioning on the 28th April!
