This year all planned events and Community fundraising were postponed and so we unfortunately cannot run our community volunteer programme. Share your details with us and we will reach out once our volunteer programme is back up and running.

Volunteers & Student Placements

Coolmine has a long history in supporting volunteers and students. Volunteers and students come to Coolmine from a wide range of backgrounds with diverse interests and motivations, all of which help Coolmine deliver better services.

What do Volunteers and Student placements do?

Volunteers usually get involved in all aspects of project work, and sometimes support services like fund raising and administration. Students usually do a set number of hours or week in a given time to meet their course requirements. Volunteer generally work in one or more of the projects between half a day and three days per week depending on the time they have available.

Why Volunteer?

Some of the reasons our volunteers have given include the following: to do something they enjoy, to give back to their community, to make use of talents and abilities, to gain knowledge or learn new skills, to learn more about a career or profession as a possible career, to meet college course requirements or to act as a stepping stone into paid employment. What they all want to do is give some of their time, to help make a difference in the community and in their own lives.

Would you or someone you know like to help?

Unfortunately we cannot run our community volunteer programme this year as all planned events and community fundraising have been postponed. In the meantime you can share your details with us and we will reach out once our volunteer programme is back up and running.

We will then ask you to fill in a Volunteer_Application_Form or a Student_Application_Form.

How can I get involved while I wait?

Until we can get back to our usual community fundraising, volunteering and student placements, there’s still lots of ways you can help in the meantime.
