34 chaplains have been commissioned already this year!

    At YouthCARE we have had an incredible start to 2020!

    Already this year we have inducted and commissioned 34 chaplains into schools from as far north as Mount Magnet down to Albany, and everywhere in-between.

    Nicola is one of our chaplains who was commissioned in February and has started her YouthCARE chaplaincy role at Inglewood Primary School.

    “The induction week was extremely helpful, not only in terms of the content covered but as an opportunity to meet other new chaplains, hear stories from experienced chaplains and meet the other staff who work at YouthCARE central office,” said Nicola.

    YouthCARE’s chaplaincy application process has been refined over the last 40 years of experience to ensure the best quality service possible is delivered to schools. 63% of chaplains placed in state schools through YouthCARE have more than the minimum requirements of becoming a chaplain.

    Nicola had met YouthCARE chaplains previously through her son’s high school as well as her position on the P&C and knew that the quality of pastoral care provided in schools through YouthCARE was exceptional.

    ” After meeting several YouthCARE chaplains and hearing about the great work they do, it was an easy choice for me to apply with YouthCARE when I was ready to become a chaplain,” she said.
