Volunteering @IT Tralee

There is a strong volunteering ethos ‌among IT Tralee students; ‘60% of IT Tralee students volunteer, committing an average of 3 hours a week.’

(IT Tralee Volunteering & Civic Engagement Survey, 2015)


Student volunteering provides an opportunity to demonstrate skills and knowledge, get some real-life experience and help the campus or wider community at the same time. The skills learned transfer into the world of work and volunteering experience is a great addition to any CV. Volunteering is a great way to connect with people from different backgrounds ,and courses. Also, volunteering can be a great way to experience something totally different and maybe even learn something new about yourself.


The President’s Civic Spirit Award has been established to recognise and acknowledge the significant contribution of IT Tralee’s student volunteers to the Institute and the wider community. Engaging with one’s community as a volunteer brings a benefit to both student and community, this award seeks to encourage student community engagement, active citizenship and build on the established work that is being carried out by students.
