Volunteer with Fáilte Isteach

Volunteer with Fáilte Isteach

Fáilte Isteach is a national project providing free conversational English classes for migrants. Today there are 83 Fáilte Isteach projects throughout the country. Every week approximately 2,200 students are positively impacted by Fáilte Isteach, with almost 750 volunteers offering over 40,000 hours of tuition annually to students from over 75 countries.

Fáilte Isteach works at breaking down the barriers that migrants and communities face by extending the hands of friendship and goodwill through the practical, welcoming and inclusive manner in which the programme is delivered. Fáilte Isteach provides more than the transfer of skills and knowledge. It is making a positive difference to everyone involved.

As the project is volunteer-led we are always looking for new tutors to teach within existing groups as well as hearing from people interested in setting up a new Fáilte Isteach in their community. We offer all our volunteers training and ongoing support.
