Last Friday despite the chaos caused by the Bus Strike our Young Vinnies Leaders David Lalor, Matthew Kereama, Jacob Ridling and Salaam Iwaz, attended the first meeting of the Auckland Secondary Schools Council at McLaurin Hall in the City.

Our first Young Vinnies meeting in Week 2 saw over 40 boys turn up to commit themselves to working for the poor. This was a fantastic show of support so early and it looks like we are going to be in for a very busy year.

As we did with Mother’s Day in May, we are extending the Challenge to ALL Young Vinnies and ALL students in our Rosminian Community to take Dad out on Father’s Day, Sunday 6 September, to acknowledge them and thank them for all they do in our lives.

If it isn’t possible to take him out on the day then the request is to put on a meal or something special for him during the day. E.g. sole control of the TV remote for the day!

“Thank You for looking at ways that you can help women who come from our communities and will return to our communities. Last week I had the honour of listening to someone who had spent a lot of time as a young man in prison and how education became a tool for transformative change in his life. The ability to lead a life of dignity and to have the support and trust of others is important for people whose lives have led them in doing things that have harmed others and hurt themselves. Taking responsibility for your actions is very important but we must also create communities that support those who have fallen. These acts of support do not need to be large things but just ways that we demonstrate that we care for those in our community”- Tracey Mcintosh to Young Vinnies
