Solas Project is a charity (CHY 17385) based in Dublin 8. Our vision is to see communities rejuvenated. We aim to do this by equipping and building up young people to overcome all limitations imposed on them by social and educational disadvantage through the adventure of discovering their abilities and self-worth.
Every year at Solas Project we have three European volunteers who move to Ireland and take on a pivotal role in our organisation.
We are looking for someone external who could act as a neutral mentor for these young people. You will meet them outside of their volunteer hours, for a walk / coffee, or online Zoom / phone calls / video calls. This can be flexible to suit you, for example it can be a weekday morning, a Friday or a weekend day. You will receive support from our Volunteer Manager who will provide some information on the role and thereafter check in with you on a regular basis.
