Support Your Cause with SERVE training

Cork-based charity SERVE is hosting volunteer training and Global Citizenship Education workshops in Feb, April and May.

During this time, you'll meet other like-minded people who are participating in different SERVE Volunteer Programmes. You will also work with experienced SERVE mentors to sharpen your volunteering skills. This will help you identify your interests and support the cause you are most committed too with a local organisation of your choice.

The recruitment process is as follows:

  • Complete this registration form:
  • Once you have submitted your application, a SERVE team member will be in contact with you to organise an interview (in-person or Zoom).
  • If you are successful, your place will be confirmed shortly afterwards.

Things to know:

  • Volunteers must complete a minimum of 8 hours local volunteer work with an organisation of their choosing before 20th Oct 2023.
  • There may be an opportunity to volunteer with one of our overseas partners online. This will be discussed during training.

Fees & Fundraising

The programme fee is €150, and you are required to raise a minimum of €500 in aid of SERVE.

This covers the costs relating to:

  • pre-placement training costs
  • local volunteering support
  • online volunteering facilitation
  • continuous mentoring by experienced SERVE mentors
  • a grant to our overseas partners, who you will be learning about during pre-placement training
  • your attendance at the SERVE “Next Step” Weekend in October, following the completion of your online and local volunteering

You will receive fundraising support and workshops extensively during the pre-placement training days and on request at any stage throughout the process.
