  • What does it mean to work with a Catholic organisation? +

    We appreciate and value the diversity of our volunteers and accept individuals coming from a variety of faith, spiritual and cultural backgrounds. As volunteers work very closely with Catholic Priests and Sisters, it is really important that they respect the Catholic ethos under which they are working.
  • What is the length of the volunteer placements? +

    The Cagliero Project accepts volunteers for a minimum of six months to a maximum of twelve months. Many of our placements have a twelve-month requirement however there are also six-month volunteer opportunities available. .
  • Where do Cagliero volunteers live during their placement? +

    All volunteers live and work closely with a Salesian community, which is usually made up of Salesian Priests or Sisters and other volunteers. All volunteers live in the same location where they carry out their work.
  • Do I have to pay for anything? +

    Although they receive no financial payment, we do not want our volunteers to be financially disadvantaged in any way. The Cagliero Project pays for plane tickets, travel and medical insurance, visa expenses and all cost associated with attending and participating in the formation program. The overseas placement pays for accommodation, food and basic necessities. Please click here for a copy of our financial agreement.
