Your Community Needs You!

Calling All Former Volunteers

Dear Friends,

It is that time of the year again…. the buds are back on the trees, the sun is trying its hardest to shine…. and we are hoping that you will be interested and able to come back to Ozanam House and join our Summer Project Team again this year.

 

This year our summer projects, both senior and youth projects are being coordinated by our long time Volunteers, Eireann and Nino and they are hoping that you will be able to once again share your expertise and your energy to assist them in running a successful project in 2018.

 

Having volunteers who have been on the project before makes such a HUGE difference to the success of the summer.

Your knowledge, skills and experience as well as the confidence that you bring has such a positive impact on the projects and is a big support to our coordinators and to those volunteers who will be joining us for the first time.

We would love to have you back!

 

We are trying to have our team confirmed and in place by MID MAY this year so if you are interested in coming back on board this year please let us know asap.

 

I have attached a ‘Returning Volunteer Interest Form’ that you could fill in and send back to us or just drop us a line letting us know when you are available and we will do the rest.

 

In the meantime if you have any questions or queries just let us know

Phone us on: 01-874-2804

Or email: admin@ozanamhouse.ie

Join Our Summer Team 2018

 

Dear Friends,

If you have skills you wish to share, if you want to have a unique and fun experience, to develop your skills further, greatly enhancing your CV and also to make a really big difference in the lives of young people in the Inner City then get in touch NOW:

Ozanam House is a community project operated by the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul and located in Mountjoy Square, Dublin 1.

Throughout the year we run childcare, youth, adult education and community programmes.

Each summer we undertake a large number of summer programmes for young people of all ages and we engage as many volunteers as possible in making this happen. Volunteers are asked to give a minimum of one week to the project of their choice. Full Training is provided in advance of the start date.

Summer Projects 2018

During the summer months the centre is taken up with our Summer Projects, with 200 children and young people involved in action packed, activity based programmes.

We run 2 summer projects as follows:

1)   SENIOR Youth Service   –  

       13 to 18 years   –   18th June to 13th July    Monday to Friday  – daytime hours (normally 12pm-5pm).

2)   YOUTH Summer Project   –  

       6 to 12 years   –   2nd   July to 27th  July     Monday to Friday from 10:00am to 4pm.

As you can imagine they are all great fun, very energising and also very rewarding as we engage vulnerable children who otherwise would not have any activities or holidays during the summer. The children and young people engage in action packed programmes which include arts and crafts, sports, film making, cookery, weekly excursions, photography, fashion design, swimming and much more.

See our Photo Library from previous projects below for a sneak preview of what to expect….
