On Thursday the 31st of October the Archdiocesan Office for Youth (AOY) hosted a Mission Expo event at the Cardinal Knox Centre in East Melbourne. It was the first time of a kind and a perfect platform to advertise the Cagliero Project from the Salesians of Don Bosco.
The evening provided a fantastic opportunity for anyone interested in Mission work to find all the mission programs in one space at one time.
The Cagliero Project received a great response from the audience and was able to develop some great conversations with young people wishing to volunteer overseas.
Another element of the evening was the guest speakers. They spoke of their mission experiences, giving insight to those young people interested in volunteering some of their time and talent.
I was fortunate enough to share my story of living in an overseas community while volunteering. It was a fantastic way for me to share some insights into the Cagliero Project.
Seeing many interested young people and having some past volunteers and members of the Cagliero Project family supporting the event was a highlight of the Mission Expo.
The Cagliero Project is looking forward to another opportunity like this.
