Scientology Volunteer Ministers: SOMETHING CAN BE DONE ABOUT IT (CONTINUED...)
Volunteer Ministers became known for providing help both in the Cavalcade pavilions and in other areas in times of need. They helped when floods caused devastation in Budapest, trained South African police officers on how to resolve conflicts, and were recognized as an official civil defense force in Torino.
In the United Kingdom pavilions alone, Volunteer Ministers introduced more than 21,000 people to Scientology technology. In Germany, the Cavalcade crossed the nation with more than 1,200 Volunteer Ministers in action. The Italian Cavalcade traveled more than 3,500 miles, from Pordenone to Rome and from Nuoro to Milano. In all, the IAS-sponsored Volunteer Minister Cavalcade visited 21 countries and 61 cities, traveled over 20,000 miles and helped, one-on-one, more than 185,000 people with Scientology.
THE VOLUNTEER MINISTER GLOBAL CAVALCADE
The Volunteer Minister Cavalcade was so successful in Europe that the next step was bringing this Cavalcade to the entire planet. With IAS sponsorship, all Churches of Scientology were provided with their own Volunteer Minister Cavalcade tents. On the weekends, Volunteer Ministers take these tents to communities in their areas where they provide help one-on-one.
Nearly 1,000 square feet in size, these entirely self-sufficient local Volunteer Minister tents contain displays presenting the solutions to the ruins of society contained in Scientology, and have space for introductory lectures, courses and assists. Tents carry the banner “SOMETHING CAN BE DONE ABOUT IT.”
At the same time, The support of members of the IAS made possible even larger Volunteer Minister Pavilions for continental areas. These visit major cities and bring the help of Volunteer Ministers to even more people.
