Emaus Rosario Volunteer Information
We call the volunteers who lend a hand to the Emmaus groups 'Friends'. The role of a Friend depends on his/her abilities and expectations, and on the needs of the Emmaus group of course. Collecting or sorting clothes, literacy projects, running leisure activities, a Friend can get involved in all the group's activities, bringing his/her skills and good humour! A Friend helps to nurture the link between marginalised people and society. He or she does contribute a great deal, but the benefits are shared: the person who gains most is not always who you might expect!
