Both the shop and the homework club rely on the support of volunteers. We are thrilled to welcome shop volunteers with all levels of experience, and we can put any skill set to use. The most important qualities volunteers have are a commitment of their time and a willingness to fully engage in our project and mission. Volunteers are vital operation of our shop, and we are always looking to add members to our team.

The Homework Club recruits volunteers from the University of Limerick and Mary Immaculate College. Volunteers assist with students’ schoolwork, facilitate academic games and art projects, and act as a welcoming support system for the children we serve. We need volunteers to assist students with a wide variety of subjects, and while past teaching or tutoring experience is helpful, the ability to encourage and inspire students is more important. Our Homework Club volunteers are role models that show the students that academic success and third level education are possible.
