The Prophetic Activist Scheme
The Prophetic Activist scheme is a year long volunteering opportunity to help shape Christian Aid's campaigns in 2020.
This baby has everything - weekends away, mentors, like-minded adventurers, faith, activism and training.
At the heart of this scheme is co-collaboration, co-delivery and a real focus on theological and advocacy development, not to mention a good word on your cv.
