Leitrim Development Company will hold a training evening with Sligo Volunteer Centre on Wednesday, November 12th at 7.30pm in the Bee Park Resource Centre in Manorhamilton.
This event will provide information for community groups on volunteer recruitment, induction and support.
Information will also be provided on how to use the volunteering website and groups will be helped to register vacancies at the event.
Leitrim’s Volunteering website, www.volunteerinleitrim.ie was launched in December 2013 by Leitrim Development Company and was funded under the Rural Development Programme (LEADER) to promote volunteering in Leitrim.
Community groups, sports clubs and charitable organisations can register volunteer positions by registering on the website and volunteers can then register their interest in these vacancies.
The website automatically matches volunteers with volunteer vacancies that suit their areas of interest.
Leitrim has a strong history of volunteering with community based groups operating in every village in the county.
