We ensure young people have the skills and resources to build lives of dignity.
Companions in Action is our new global project for schools. You can find out more about this work here. These action based, service-led international partnerships will bring together young people from around the world to take action to tackle injustice, speak out for the marginalised and adopt lifestyle changes to care for our common home. Using the resources of the international Jesuit network Companions in Action links schools in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
Here in the UK Jesuit Missions provides support and educational resources for schools to help young people better understand their vital role as global citizens and in promoting a faith that does justice. We provide school visits, workshops, speakers, volunteering opportunities and events which connect students with the wider world.
We also support a wide range of projects and are dedicated to providing life-changing education to children from disadvantaged communities around the world. We provide the resources necessary to help build schools and train teachers so that students get the best possible education. We help passionate young people make the leap from school to dignified work. We work closely with refugee communities to ensure children are able to continue their education.
