Youth Volunteering focus for Multi-Sport Volunteer Forum

October 7th, 2022

Ulster GAA, in collaboration with Irish FA and Ulster Rugby, will host an online multi-sport volunteer forum focusing on ‘Involving Young Volunteers in Sport’ on Wednesday 19th October from 7pm to 8pm.

Sport is attractive to many young people and our clubs do fantastic work in attracting young people to play our games. However, young people, whether players or not, can also make a valuable contribution to your club through volunteering.

This workshop will hear from three young sports volunteers about their experiences volunteering in their clubs. It will give you an insight into programmes and initiatives that you can implement to attract, develop and recognise young volunteers right across your club activity from coaching, to fundraising and communications, to maintenance and stewarding and everything in between.

This session will also promote the popular Sports Inspire Award Programme, recognising volunteering excellence in sport.

This volunteer forum is a must for any club wishing to involve young people in its activities.

The event will be hosted via Microsoft Teams. You can access Teams through your web browser, or you can download the Teams application onto your device. All registered participants will be emailed the link to the online forum on the morning of Wednesday 19th October.

This multi-sports volunteering forum will be delivered under the Department for Communities programme, Sport – A Home for Lifelong Volunteering.
