WYA Volunteers

Are you interested in learning new skills in drama, dance, film, writing or visual art? Skills you can use elsewhere?

WYA operates a Child Safety Policy which includes the aim to always have two adults in every workshop. WYA pays for a tutor to run each workshop, but for the organisation to run smoothly we need to have a volunteer adult on board for each workshop. What we give in return is some training and hopefully some enjoyment to the leader. We have some great volunteers who have committed themselves for many years to help with individual workshops – these people are the backbone of our work and ensure that at all times workshops are safe and good fun for all involved.

WYA now needs new volunteers – No experience necessary – all you need is an interest and a commitment to see through a term with a particular group. You can see from the times and venues below what types of commitment would be necessary.

In return you will learn new skills from the tutor. You will receive some training in child safety, first aid, etc. In the past we have found volunteers from parents, teachers, youthworkers, third level students and other arts workers. If you are interested, get in contact with Youth Arts worker Shane, you can email Shane at
