Effective Volunteers play an essential and pivotal role in successful clubs and leagues. The FAI has a solid body of hard working, diligent, conscientious administrators working at all levels. The majority of these people are voluntary. Many spend an inordinate amount of time executing their duties with little by way of support, or appreciation for their efforts. As a result, it is becoming increasingly difficult to attract and retain volunteers for our clubs and leagues.
The aim of the FAIâ€™s Volunteer Education programme is to implement education programs to support and guide volunteers in their work and commitment to our Clubs and Leagues.
Every year the FAI organises more than forty volunteer education courses which cover areas such as volunteer management, fundraising fundamentals and groundskeeping.
At a wider level we have undertaken research into volunteerism in Ireland â€“ we have consulted the White Paper on Supporting Voluntary Activity (2000), the report of the National Committee on Volunteering, Tipping the Balance (Oct 2002), the European Volunteer Centreâ€™s Report Voluntary Action in Ireland Facts and Figures (April 2004) and the Joint Oireachtas Committeeâ€™s Volunteers and Volunteering in Ireland (Jan 2005).
