A Nationwide Initiative

Volunteering For All Award

The Volunteering For All award is a nationwide initiative that recognises and affirms volunteering and chartable work undertaken by young people from all backgrounds and circumstances. This initiative is supported by the Department of Justice and Equality through the Office for the Promotion of Migrant Integration.

Volunteering For All is a way to honour the spirit of volunteerism amongst young people, it is not a measure of quantity of volunteering taking place. We celebrate the positive contribution all young people make to the place in which they live.

The Volunteering For All programme can be undertaken in schools, it is intercurricular and can complement Student Council activities and other leadership programmes, the Junior Cycle Profile of Achievement, Wellbeing, SPHE, CSPE, RE, Politics and Society, LCA, LCVP and TY.

The Volunteering For All award can also be attained in youth clubs and other places where young people are engaged in volunteerism. It is complimentary to existing programmes, highlighting how young people make a positive contribution to their communities.
