NUI Galway recently awarded the CSR recognition from Galway Chamber 2019:
ALIVE is NUI Galway's Student Volunteering Programme
ALIVE is dedicated to supporting students to engage in positive volunteering experiences. We help match student volunteers to the right roles, train student volunteers to gain the most from their experience, support and recognise student volunteers.
ALIVE connects students to volunteering projects:
off campus: charities, schools, hospitals, non-profit groups and communities
on campus: peer to peer mentoring, health programmes, social enterprises
Through a wide range of volunteer roles, that fit into student schedules and life, ALIVE assists students who want to develop tangible and transferable skills while they are gaining practical volunteering experience.
Visit the ALIVE website to create your volunteer profile, learn about volunteering and sign up to volunteer. Log your volunteer hours and learning experiences to earn recognition.
Twice a year both campus based and local organisations exhibit in Aras na Mac Leinn at the Volunteering Fair to connect with students in order to:
Showcase volunteer opportunities
Demonstrate the work and career opportunities with the non-profit sector
Highlight community engagement and active citizenship

Volunteering is celebrated at NUI Galway and we annually come together as a community to award volunteers and celebrate student engagement.
