Volunteer Expo 2018

                VOLUNTEER EXPO


        Thursday 13th September

    10am -2pm

 It's that time of the year again – the Carlow Volunteer Expo is just around the corner! 
Once again we will be teaming up with the Fairgreen Shopping Centre to host the 8th consecutive Volunteer Expo on Thursday, 13th of September. 
Carlow Volunteer Centre appreciate how important volunteers are and our Expo is all about giving groups and organisations a helping hand to find more volunteers. This is a great chance to find out more about what different voluntary roles require, the various organisations that need more help and most important - finding the right opportunity for you! 
“Feedback from groups in previous years has been very positive as it allows them to meet potential new volunteers, and it creates an awareness about the organisation and the services they provide.” says Natasha Akerele from Carlow Volunteer Centre. “Carlow has such a strong community spirit, and people are always willing to go the extra mile for a good cause”  
Although volunteering is primarily of huge benefit to our local community it brings many benefits to those who volunteer. Volunteering is a great way to meet new people and widen your social circle. You can also develop skills that can benefit you both personally and professionally. Volunteering shows employers you are gaining experience, but that you are also proactive in personal development. 
The event will kick off in Fairgreen Shopping Centre from 10am – 2pm, with BEAT 102/103 & the Beat Fleet broadcasting live from the event. If that's not enough to get you to pop down, there's also a chance to win a €50 Fairgreen Shopping Centre voucher on the day! Check out our Facebook event page for more information closer to the date on how to enter. 
Make sure to call in and check out the various organisations you can volunteer with  (there's over 30!) and let's improve our community together.
