Annual Volunteering Fair to Inspire Next Generation of Volunteers


Tuesday, 5 September, 2017: NUI Galway’s sixteenth annual Volunteering Fair will take place on Tuesday, 12th of September in the Bailey Allen Hall, from 11-4pm. Over sixty local, national and international organisations will showcase their work to inspire creative thinking and approaches to social causes.


NUI Galway is committed to nurturing the next generation of students to be collaborative, innovative and entrepreneurial, all the qualities needed to be part of the community as an active volunteer in a changing environment.  


Charities and campus based programmes attend the Volunteering Fair to empower students. Lorraine Tansey, Student Volunteer Coordinator at NUI Galway, said: “The important skills of empathizing, listening and communicating can be taught in a classroom, but our community partners connect our students to action projects to build student’s experience and confidence to be leaders of our community. We need creative problem solving to be able to live in socially and environmentally conscious ways and the Fair sparks and inspires students to be active in creating change for others and themselves.”
