We are now packed to capacity in Devere Hall  for our Volunteering fair. We have 45 excellent not-for-profit, charities, and  civic and community organisations coming on the day.

This volunteering initiative is aligned to University College Cork Priority One : Connected Curriculum which focuses on emphasizing the holistic development of students via Civic and Community engagement. Alongside this civic engagement, there is Sustainability. The Sustainability connection represents the university’s commitment to the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals. This will also form part of the Volunteering Fair, as we have the SDG’s taking a stand and encouraging students to take the 1.5 hour free workshop on how they can contribute to the SDG goals.
