Have you been tasked with organising a volunteering opportunity for your work team? Are you wondering where to start?
If so, we encourage you to join our weekly Employee Volunteering Information Session. Whether you have a team of 6 or 60, these sessions will give you the essential information you need to successfully plan your volunteer activity. We share ideas on the types of volunteering you could consider, needs and expectations of community groups and the general Do’s and Don’ts of corporate volunteering.
Information sessions are hosted weekly on Fridays 11am-12noon. You only need to attend once as we cover the same topics each week. To attend email [email protected].
Wondering how best to plan your team volunteer day? Thinking about developing an employer supported volunteer programme?
If so, check out our Resource Library! Here you’ll find everything you need from volunteer engagement ideas, How to Guides, a list of our most Frequently Asked Questions, checklists to guide you through planning a team activity, a sample project risk assessment and even painting guidelines for that one-off community painting project you’ve signed up to.
Looking for an experienced team to plan and manage your large-scale company volunteer events?
Volunteer Ireland’s corporate team collaborates with companies on large scale partnerships engaging hundreds of employee volunteers in a range of community projects and global volunteer campaigns.
Whatever your interests are - giving business advice to charities; hands on painting and gardening projects; delivering STEM activities to schools; engaging in social activities with the elderly; assembling play packs for children in hospital, meal packs for Ukrainians living in Ireland – we will work with you to develop meaningful and impactful volunteer opportunities.
Volunteer Ireland’s corporate programme has developed an ethos to guide in our work with our corporate partners. Our ethos includes the following statement:
At all times we aim to support the most vital needs in our community. We do this by primarily focusing our efforts on partnering with small, local, grassroots organisations and DEIS schools that would not otherwise have access to corporate support. We continuously endeavour to ensure that our work is meaningful, impactful and relevant to those with the highest level of need.
