Our youth regular Social Events

Each society also holds regular social events, because volunteering is always more fun when you do it with friends! Joining a college SVP society is a great way to meet people with similar interests and get involved in meaningful work during your time in college.

If there isn’t a college group running in your institution, please get in touch with us and we can discuss possibilities for getting involved. Whether you’re interested in setting up a society or running a once-off fundraiser or event, we can support you along the way. If you are interested in having a guest speaker talk or social justice workshop from SVP for your class group or for a college event, we’d be delighted to work with you on that too.

For more information and for contact details for specific groups, please contact the National College Support Officer at colleges@svp.ie.
