Laois Youth Volunteers & Laois Young Creatives Scheme 2020

Laois Youth Volunteers & Laois Young Creatives Scheme 2020

Due to Covid19, this summer of 2020 has provided restricted work opportunities to college students during their college breaks. Therefore this summer has provided fewer opportunities to students to further develop and demonstrate interpersonal and workplace skills. For those students without summer jobs, Summer 2020 risks being a “gap” within their CVs.

However Volunteerism and associated activities can develop equivalent skill sets.

The Laois Youth Volunteers & Laois Young Creatives Scheme initiative seeks to:
•  Recognise volunteerism occurring among the 18-25 year olds
•  Encourage more people to volunteer from that age group
•  Recognise Creative work being undertaken this summer among the 18-25 year olds
•  Recognise local research work being undertaken this summer among the 18-25 year olds
•  Encourage Creative and Research work and to provide platforms to capture & display these works
•  Provide an appropriate recognition for CV purposes

The initiative will be managed and co-ordinated jointly by Laois County Council, Laois Partnership Company, LOETB.
The above partners will work closely with Laois PPN and Foróige in promoting the initiative. For more information please refer to the information booklet below.
