What kind of work do Cagliero Volunteers do?

In determining the type of work our volunteers do – we take into account their training, academic standard and trade/professional background. Volunteers also have an opportunity to express a geographical area of interest on the application. We do our best to place people in the country/region they wish to go. A primary focus of the Cagliero Project is working with the young people in the community: in a school, youth centre, oratory or mission centre. Therefore volunteers take on roles such as teachers, mentors, counsellors, social workers, labourers or nurses. Our volunteers are given a specific job before going abroad, however, there are a lot of different ministries that go on in a Salesian community and they may be called to undertake other tasks. For example, a primary task may be to teach in a technical school, but the community in which you live may also run a food program for the poor and you may also be called upon to assist with that program.

Where can you go as a Cagliero Volunteer?

The Salesians of Don Bosco have communities all over the world. The Cagliero Project focuses on supporting Salesian communities in the Asia and Oceania regions. We also extend our support to some parts of Africa. There are placement descriptions found above that give a thorough look into the different placements we offer.

How are Cagliero Volunteers placed?

When you apply to the program you can indicate a preference for an area of the world in which you want to work and the kind of work you want to do. After being accepted into the program the process of placing a volunteer begins. This entails discussing different options with the volunteer, contacting a placement and receiving approval from the placement to host the volunteer. Your placement request cannot be guaranteed and we ask you to be flexible throughout this process. It is important that the volunteer and community fit well together so we will do our best to find you a community that best suits your needs and the type of work you want to do.
