Volunteer Centres Support New Volunteers to Get on Board with Charities and Community Groups
On Tuesday 23rd October, Dublin Volunteer Centres brought charities and community groups together with civic-minded volunteers to strengthen governance in the sector.
The event – Get On Board! – was held at Wynn’s Hotel on Lower Abbey Street and is part of the TrustIE programme. Get on Board! is the culmination of a year’s work across Dublin, Cork and Galway. As part of the programme, 14 free training sessions were organised for volunteers and organisations to get them board-ready.
Fifty volunteers attended on Tuesday, hoping to find their perfect match. The Volunteer Centres organising the event – Dublin City, South Dublin County, Fingal and Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown – will also follow up with the additional pool of volunteers, who are interested, but unable to attend on the night.
