Volunteer at Dublin LGBTQ+ Pride 2019
Requirements:Previous experience with children is beneficial, but not a requirement
Would you like to make a difference to the next generation? Here's your chance to mentor a child and to be part of something bigger to provide a consistent, home away from home, safe place for children to come to every day after school.
The children aged 6 - 12 come from challenging backgrounds. 'The Club' is a place for them to grow and flourish. A place where they can discover what they're good at. A place where they can dream about their future and know that they are loved.
What will I gain?
This is a perfect opportunity to gain experience if you're interested in youth work, social work, teaching, community outreach work or childcare. It's also a chance to feel like you are contributing to redeem society's socio economic imbalances.
As a volunteer, you'll be inspired in the process of getting to know each of the individual children seeing the impact that a consistent secure environment can have on their, sometimes, turbulent lives.
Is training provided?: Yes
