If you are interested in volunteering with a school, please contact the school directly.
Our sector, and all our schools, have been created by voluntary community initiative and Ireland today would have no multi-denominational sector of education without the enormous efforts of thousands of parents and their supporters. Volunteering with Educate Together provides people with the opportunity to be directly involved in changing the course of Education in Ireland.
At Educate Together, we welcome the involvement of volunteers in our organisation because of the unique qualities they bring. We create opportunities for people to invest their skills in our work and we welcome volunteers in a variety of roles, both short and long-term.
Volunteers are treated as equal team members and are always working alongside a paid staff member. We believe that volunteers, in their diversity of age, experience, cultural background and community involvement, bring value to our work. Engaging volunteers adds value to what we do, but never replaces the work of paid staff.
Through engaging volunteers we can offer opportunities for genuine involvement, learning and development in the Education sector. Ultimately, we work to ensure that the volunteering experience is meaningful, enjoyable and fulfilling!
