Volunteering with LYCC

 

Help one another; there’s no time like the present and no present like the time.

-James Durst Poet and Songwriter

We are always looking for volunteers to help run our youth clubs.

 

Are you aged 18 or over and have an hour or two to spare once a week?

 

If so, why not volunteer to work with young people and give something back to the community. It’s a great opportunity to meet new people, have a positive effect on young people, learn new skills and have a bit of fun along the way.

You will see on our website the times our youth clubs run weekly. If you’re free during these times, please get in touch.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, either download and complete the Volunteer Application Form, and Garda Vetting Form – or phone us on 01-6247435, or call in to us for a chat!

Why volunteer?

  1. Volunteering improves your employability, as it demonstrates your personal capacity and commitment to work.
  2. Volunteering is a way of displaying your initiative and motivational skills.
  3. Volunteering at the LYCC is an opportunity waiting for you and an opportunity for you to build your self esteem through helping others in the community.
