Here at Cork Volunteer Centre we appreciate the value that students can bring as volunteers. Volunteering can be an excellent way of getting valuable experience, meeting new people, bringing your ideas and skills to an organisation and helping others. Many employers are looking for something extra special from a job seeking candidate. Seeing consistent volunteering experience on a CV reflects wonderfully on that candidate and displays discipline, committment and interest in causes.
We regularly attend careers events at third level and further education colleges, and work with UCC on two student volunteering programmes.
