Volunteering @MTU Kerry Campus

MTU Kerry Campus aims to continue to foster volunteering and civic engagement amongst its students.
There has always been 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.
