Volunteers’ Tribute

On the eve of the launch of the European Year of Volunteering, No Name Club Chief Executive Officer Con Nolan has paid tribute to the dedication and commitment of the 2,000+ volunteers who are working with the No Name Club

The European Year of Volunteering will launch with an opening ceremony on Saturday February 12th in the Royal Hospital Kilmainham, Dublin, with Patron for the Year President Mary McAleese in attendance.

“The role of volunteerism within the No Name Club ensures thousands of teenagers in towns and communities across Ireland are provided with recreational and social outlets that would, in many cases, be missing at community level,” Con Nolan, No Name Club CEO states. “The No Name Club embodies all that is good about volunteerism: people within towns coming together to respond to needs at community level. The services the adults and young people deliver are providing thousands of teenagers across the country with fun events and activities that are free from the influences of alcohol or other drugs and providing them with valuable social outlets. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our adult volunteers and our teenage hosts and hostesses for making the effort on a weekly basis to make very important and valuable contributions to the organisation and their communities.”

More than 400 adult No Name Club members around the country work with teenagers on a voluntary basis to provide them with much needed social and recreational outlets that are removed from the influences of alcohol and other drugs. The No Name Club has over 40 clubs around Ireland that have teenage hosts and hostesses running events and activities with their adult committee leaders. Around 2,000 teenagers act as hosts and hostesses within the clubs, carrying out voluntary work within their towns to deliver valuable services for their peers and young people within their communities.
