Youth serving the Youth - GEX of Macau (Young Alumni of Don Bosco)


By Our Own Correspondent


Macau, China, 13 December 2017 -- With an established tradition of helping our Salesian school students to taste the volunteering from their school time, the young past pupils of Macau Salesian Schools (Instituto Salesiano, Yuet Wah College - Primary and Secondary and FMA schools) are involved in regular volunteer services to their younger brothers and sisters in daily after school activities (daily Oratory). Since last 1992 indeed the volunteering culture among the Macau Salesian students and Alumni noticed great development.


What do treasure our young past pupils from their education received? Among the most frequent they mention the family spirit, close presence of their teachers and Salesian Brothers or Priests, joyful and inspiring environment of their schools. Indeed the name of Don Bosco was often on their lips during the sharing time.


Can we expand this volunteer spirit and action beyond our school environment? Indeed the challenge of Missionary Volunteer Service within own country or even oversea (international volunteering) was accepted by the assembly of Young Alumni (GEX) as a possible way forward.


We pray, that in all 17 schools of China province (Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan) this Mother House (Salesian School - Instituto Salesiano, founded in 1906 by Fr. Louis Versiglia) a similar youth volunteer experience will take the roots. When our young people taste the attraction of serving other youth, its usually contagious. Volunteering open the hearts of our Salesian youth to the faith and to vocation journey. In our times we are called to invest in building the volunteer culture in each of our Educative - Pastoral communities.
