What is Volunteering+ @ IT Tallaght?
To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Volunteering Fair in October 2018 the staff and students of Tallaght are being asked to ‘bank’ the hours they have spent volunteering since September 2017 into the Volunteering+ timebank.   Our target is to try and bank 10,000 hours by September 2018.  Every hour banked will gain 1 EduUnit towards supports for IT Tallaght Students.

115 students will get one of a range of supports!

Recognising your commitment to volunteering
Gold, Sliver and Bronze digital badges can be claimed to acknowledge the commitment of individual  IT Tallaght staff and students to volunteering. One of the key criteria for the badge is the volunteering hours that the individual has banked.

What Constitutes Volunteering?

  • Any time you spend helping or supporting  any member/s of a community – not just in Tallaght!
  • Supporting peers, running clubs, coaching, animal welfare, caring for the elderly or those with special needs, youth clubs, summer camps, courses, running competitions, working with schools etc.
  • It includes students/staff who run clubs and societies and those who help out at SU or community events or on campaigns.

The Volunteering hours you claim must be additional to those you are required to do as part of your course
