Together For Mission - 2024-2025

Together for Mission is a Lasallian program designed for any people, in whatever role, who work with or for young people in schools and yourtown. 

Our aim: ‘to enhance our personal and collective capacity to work effectively for the wellbeing and education of young people, especially the most vulnerable’. 

TFM concerns itself with four connected Focus Areas:

  • Young People – their lives today, their strengths and their vulnerabilities.

  • Our Lasallian Story 1651-2025 – where we’ve been and where we’re heading.

  • Education & Wellbeing – encouraging young people to be the best they can be.

  • Values & Spirituality – what underpins our work with young people.

The program runs over two years, in residential blocks of four working days, usually in school holidays. The normal pattern is to meet on a Sunday evening for dinner, and to conclude late on Thursday afternoon.
