Could your organisation do with some extra support this Autumn?

In 2013, Volunteer Ireland is partnering with the Foundation for International Education to facilitate Service Learning Placements for their incoming students in their autumn term.  This year, we are seeking placements for 125 students, each of whom will complete 20 hours of volunteering from September – December, as part of their Global Experience course module. 

Do you feel your organisation could involve an enthusiastic young adult to assist with your work?  Do you need volunteer support to help transform your office or add some colour to the interior/exterior of your building?  Do you need some additional administrative support for a few hours a week?  Could your organisation benefit with support in event planning or with your social media campaigns?  Could your organisation benefit from some much needed research or collating service user feedback?

If you answered yes to any of the above and are interested in taking on a student volunteer then please contact Claire Byrne, in Volunteer Ireland, at for further information.  Alternatively Claire can help you identify a specific role for a student to help support your organisation’s work.
