Cmi meets the provincial coordinators of Marist volunteers

The Department of Collaboration for the International Mission (CMI) completed, on 30 November, the first cycle of its meetings with the Provincial Coordinators of Volunteers (PCVs) of the 5 Marist Regions: Asia and Oceania (3 November 2020), North Arc (5 November 2020), South America (9 November 2020), Africa (26 November 2020) and Europe (30 November 2020).

The meetings, held via Zoom, were attended by members of CMI and the CPVs of each Region, including the regional delegates of the Board of Directors of the Volunteer Network and other people with strategic roles for volunteerism.

The main theme of the meetings was volunteering based on the reality of each region, and at the same time, inter-provincial volunteering.

After a moment of prayer, the CPVs of each region shared the following:

– Communication on the current situation of volunteering in each administrative unit

– Information on key challenges during the Pandemic

– Testimonials on creativity and some initiatives of volunteering at local and international level, where volunteering continues its work.

– Reflections and opinions about the work done.

 Before the end of the virtual meetings, proposals and ideas were put forward on how to continue and prepare for the future of the Marist Volunteers in each Region and in the Institute, based on the questions and challenges of the present.
