CAFOD Champions are our young adult community, aged 18-35, who come together to speak out for change.

Whether you are passionate about climate action, concerned about structures that keep communities in poverty, inspired by putting faith into action or just want to know where to start with tackling global poverty, we want to get you on your way to making a meaningful difference.

CAFOD Champions are the future dreamers and radical re-builders of the world we share. You can make change happen, and we want to equip you to be the change you want to see.

Previous young adults who have joined the network have engaged in a variety of activities. They’ve attended international residentials, camps and training workshops with campaigners from around the world. They have marched in the streets of their hometowns, in London and at UN climate summits. They've used this experience to speak to their MPs in Parliament, constituency offices and at lobbies. And they have used the skills they learned to organise action in schools, parishes, and communities, to write blogs and newspaper articles, and even for radio interviews!
