Join the Feel-Good Collective

Youth Work Ireland and our 20 Member Youth Services, have our origins in community-based volunteer led youth clubs and this work continues to be at the heart of what we do today. We could not operate without our volunteers who give their time to support youth clubs nationwide. The majority of our volunteers work directly with young people and all volunteers are trained, Garda Vetted and supported by professional youth workers.

Following the challenges of the past couple of years and the impact of Covid-19 on local communities, we are now seeing a return to normality and a massively increased demand from young people for locally run youth services. Volunteers are supporters of our network of local youth clubs, and without their help and support, this work would not be possible. Volunteers are the life-book of Youth Work Ireland and the fuel on which our organisation runs, with them, none of it would be possible.

It is our aim to empower volunteers with the skills and training that not only provides personal positive impact, but also a positive impact on the lives of young people and their local communities.

If you would like to volunteer with a local youth clubs – you can contact one of our Member Youth Services to find out how.
