There’s nothing more valuable than time!

The birth of the Educate Together movement is a story of a unique contribution made to Irish education on an entirely voluntary basis by parents, teachers and supporters. Whatever way you can help, you’ll become part of a community of people working together to support the delivery of innovative, equality-based schooling across Ireland.

Current board vacancies (currently no board vacancies)

Volunteering on an Educate Together school board of management is a unique and rewarding way to contribute to both your community and to the Irish education system at a local and a national level.

Our boards have a direct say in the running of our schools and in the work of our organisation. Member schools can influence change in the network and in the Irish education system through participation at our AGM.

Educate Together appoints two nominees to each of our primary school boards of management. Boards for the current term of office were newly appointed in December 2023 and will run until 2027.

Educate Together also appoints nominees to boards of management of our post-primary schools.  Each post-primary school’s board is renewed on a cyclical basis, and vacancies arise on these boards when they are due for renewal.

Training is provided, so while experience is welcomed, it is not necessary.  We do ask for a commitment to upholding the Educate Together ethos and a willingness to learn and participate.

To find out more about one of these vacancies or about sitting on an Educate Together school board of management contact us on 01 429 2500 or email info@educatetogether.ie.

Volunteering in an individual school

If you would like to volunteer in a particular school, please contact the principal or chairperson of the board of management of that school.

Volunteering in the Educate Together national office

The Educate Together national office is based in Dublin city centre and sometimes has opportunities to volunteer in programmes such as communications or fundraising. Volunteering with us the Educate Together national office offers opportunities for genuine involvement, learning and development in the education sector. We work to ensure that the volunteering experience is meaningful, enjoyable and fulfilling!

Volunteering with an Educate Together campaign group

An Educate Together campaign group is made up of parents / carers who want an Educate Together school for their children. In recent years, the Educate Together network has grown substantially and parental support has been critical to the successful establishment of new schools.
