The safety of our volunteers is our number one priority and that’s why we’re bringing the classroom to you! You can now join us online from your own home or workplace. Events will work the same way as always, except now they will be done virtually. Our team are here to provide support, training and guidance to volunteers whether you need help with Zoom, online interaction, or more. Keep an eye on your inbox for upcoming opportunities and remember you can sign up to volunteer just one hour with no obligation here.
Why volunteer? As you know, the young people we work with come from some of the most disadvantaged areas in Dublin. These young people are more isolated, demotivated and at risk than ever. Many are separated from their friends, struggling with online learning, and working in non-ideal environments. The challenges wrought by the pandemic combined with the already serious hurdles faced by these students leaves them at serious risk of becoming marginalised, and excluded. This is why we need YOUR help! By offering as little as one hour of your time you may give them some much needed advice, food for thought, career inspiration and brighten their aspirations.
What Do I Need To Do? Volunteers do not need to prepare anything in advance. Simply log-in, be present, and speak about the work they do day to day, its challenges, and how they got there.We have a unique opportunity to provide much needed support, interaction and representation to young people during a difficult time – and you get to give back, feel inspired by their ideas, and do something special and unique during a historic time.
