Long Term Program

Application Form 2020
PROGRAM DATES: 17/01/20 to 06/12/20

Lasallian Mission Services currently offers long term volunteer programs across Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea. Acting in FAITH, motivated by Gospel values and sharing COMMUNITY with the Brothers and Partner Lasallians, Lasallian Volunteers empower the marginalised in our communities by offering SERVICE, primarily through education and welfare work.

Lasallian Volunteers (LVs): Long-term program is an eleven-month program which allows dedicated volunteers to experience a full-time commitment to Lasallian works. It provides an avenue for volunteers to serve, grow, and change lives (theirs and others). The LV program is an opportunity to be formally associated with the mission whilst connected and accompanying a Lasallian community. This unique ministry is about building and strengthening Lasallian relationships to bring young people closer to God. Locations are varied across the District; Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea.

The program is supported pastorally, financially and administratively by Lasallian Mission Services. Upon acceptance into the program, a once-only contribution of $1,000 towards travel expenses will assist the cost of flights to and from placements in January and December. While in placement, you will receive a modest weekly reimbursement to assist with the cost of personal items. Food and accommodation costs will be catered for you in community. If the contribution towards travel expenses might deter your application, please contact Joanne Nehme, the LV coordinator at joannenehme@delasalle.org.au

Information about each of the Placements can be found on our website
