Volunteers' Week is a brilliant chance to celebrate and thank our fantastic volunteers for the contribution they make.
It takes place 1-7 June. This year we will be sharing brilliant stories from a handful of Venture, Falcon and School Venture volunteers. We also have a special 'thank you' message.
John Dunnett: Our volunteers are one in a million
General Director of CPAS, John Dunnett, thanks our Venture, Falcon and School Venture volunteers for their unique contribution to the ministry of CPAS.
Ventures and Falcons Junior Leaders
Our Junior Leaders make such a difference on our Venture and Falcon holidays. There are a huge range of tasks to be fulfilled, and plenty of opportunities to get involved with. We are so grateful to the many students and other young adults that volunteer as Junior Leaders.
Tim Friend: A message of thanks to our volunteers
Watch this short message from Ventures and Falcons Principal, Tim Friend, thanking all the volunteers that make over 100 Venture and Falcon holidays take place every year.
'If you're considering volunteering for School Ventures, just do it! It doesn't matter if you are an introvert or an extrovert, there's a place for everyone within the team. And who knows? The children might even teach you something new.' - Amanda Cole
'Camp Week (when I volunteer with Falcons) has been central to my life each year. My husband, Gary, and I were Overall Leaders of our team for many years. Though now we have handed over the leadership baton, and we both continue to serve as members of the team.' - Norma Piper
Ventures are great and I feel really blessed that I can use the gifts God has given me to spread His word. I am just a small part of a bigger team, but love the work I do. If we all do a little bit, it isn't arduous, it is enjoyable and a real pleasure.' - Carol Aitman
