Power to Change’s Chaplains serve the school by providing spiritual and emotional support to school communities. They work alongside other school staff in helping students discover better ways to articulate and deal with the many issues they face on a daily basis.
These issues can include family breakdown, loneliness, peer pressure and questions such as what subject will they choose. Sometimes having another person to talk with as they make that decision can mean the difference between a student who is engaged in the school day and a student who is in distress and not engaging in the life of the school. Even though the school is already equipped with incredibly capable people, our Chaplains / Volunteers can complement through their support and programs.
The school is a complex environment so we will work with you to see how the Chaplain fits your setting.
Power to Change’s Chaplains operate as a Non-Government Funded Program. Our team operates from a broad base funding model, allowing us to design a program that better serves each school setting. Our funding can come from individuals, community groups, churches etc.
Our funding model is from multiple sources ensuring a stronger foundation and future for the schools worker and therefore the school. Our model means that if any one funding source stops, additional funding will be raised so that the role can continue.
All such funding is tax deductable.
All our Schools Workers and Chaplains have up to date Child Protection, Anaphylaxis and First Aid training. They also have a minimum DET requirement of Certificate 4 in Youth Work and Certificate 4 in Theology.
They also receive ongoing skill development, training and coaching throughout the year.
They can also attend school staff development days and other onsite training that are offered within the School.
