What is Mini Vinnies?
Mini Vinnies helps empower our students to become advocates within their school and local community by putting their values into action. Â They meet regularly to learn about social justice issues, develop leadership skills and engage with the wider St Vincent de Paul Society.
Who benefits from Mini Vinnies?
Mini Vinnies is about doing good works in the community that benefit people facing social injustice. It is also about our students meeting to talk, share ideas and concerns, to have fun and support each other.
The Mini Vinnies model of â€œSee, Think, Doâ€ is a great way to get students thinking and talking about their spirituality and to connect their faith with issues affecting their community through volunteering, advocacy and fundraising. Not only do the students in Mini Vinnies benefit from the experience but also the school and wider community.
St. Johnâ€™s Vincentians look forward to your continued support and generosity towards this amazing cause as we ALL work together to help those in need and combat social injustice. Â Thank you.
