Help us reach even more young people

Fundraise

Organising an event or running a race is the perfect way to raise funds and awareness about SpunOut.ie in a fun and engaging way that suits you. The easiest way to do collect funds is by creating a fundraising page for SpunOut.ie by using JustGiving.com.

Over half of Irish young people say they look to online sources for advice before talking to someone about a problem. SpunOut.ie helps young people through the most difficult of problems, including mental health and addiction. 

Around 80,000 Irish young people come to SpunOut.ie each month for advice and support.

We're always looking for volunteers to participate in mini-marathons, full marathons and other challenge events to raise funds to the support the young people we work with. Get in touch at ian@spunout.ie or sign up at JustGiving.com

Work experience and placement

We offer work experience and placement opportunities to young people aged 16 to 25. It can be hard to get placements that really help us learn and grow. In SpunOut.ie we offer placements to:

  • Transition Year students.
  • College students who specialise in journalism, youth work or communication and marketing only.
  • International students.
  • Graduates and those who are unemployed with interests/qualifications in journalism, youth work or communication/marketing.

We offer placements for those with specific interests and experience so as to ensure that both the individual and organisation get the most out of our time together. Informal interviews will be carried out with those interested. Unfortunately it’s not possible to offer a placement to everyone who contacts us.

Placements come with full supervision, a learning development plan and other great training opportunities.
