What is volunteering?
Simply put, volunteering is personal time and resources freely given. Your time and resource will benefit you and the club/society organisation/group equally. Volunteering activity which is very broad and varied forms the very core of all vibrant and inclusive societies. For these reasons UL uniquely promotes, supports and encourages student volunteering through the President's Volunteer Programme (PVA).
The PVA team are dedicated to supporting our student volunteers. We also support volunteer entrepreneurs.
There are very many reasons why students volunteer for example:
Studentvolunteer.ie: How it works
www.studentvolunteer.ie is a national volunteer online system that manages all your volunteering activity.
What is the PVA?
The PVA is a programme which formally recognises and awards student volunteers.
UL is unique insofar as it recognises your volunteering on your academic transcript.
PVA recipients are honored by the President of UL at the Annual PVA Ceremony.
