18 - 30? Want to change the world? Are you ready to take an adventure that will change you and those around you? Your journey begins and ends in the UK, but takes you to one of the poorest countries in the world to meet amazing people and to share their lives.

CAFOD believes in equipping and inspiring young adult leaders to be able to contribute to a more just and peaceful world.

In partnership with our UK placements we offer opportunities for 18-30 year olds to gain experience, develop leadership skills and spend a year in the service of others. This allows them to inspire a generation of people to act for the poorest and most marginalised.

Why not do your Catholic Gap year with CAFOD? Applications for September 2019 are now open.

By being in either a retreat centre, university chaplaincy or school chaplaincy you can volunteer as part of a programme which works alongside the Catholic community and others to bring about a more just world. This programme includes a visit to CAFOD partners and the communities we work with overseas.
