IGNITE – VINNIES YOUTH PROGRAMME SUPPORT TEAM

The Ignite Team formed out of a need to bridge the gap between high school students and young adults. These young men support the delivery of Vinnies projects and educational sessions in schools. They receive regular formation and leadership development, as well as the opportunity to facilitate events for young people.

ELDERLY VISITATION

Once a fortnight a number of Vinnies also visit Wesley Rest Home Hospital in Mount Eden to connect in with our elders. Those who attend lead the music for residents and engage in conversation. The residents are fond of music and enjoy meeting new faces and connecting in.
