I'm Sarah and I'm your Entertainments or Ents Officer. It'll be my aim to bring back the craic on campus (as restrictions on in-person activities ease!), with lots of acts, workshops, nights out and plenty of events. Charities will be another big focus. This year we will be supporting Empower the Family through the volunteer programme we set up with them last year and through fundraising.
If you're interested in getting involved in Ents (being at the heart of helping out with events!) or want to know more about it, don't hesitate to pop me an email at email@example.com or send me a DM on Instagram @the_entstagram!
Empower the Family CLG (EtF) was founded in 2018 by Deborah Somorin MSc. ACA. Empower the Family have developed an innovative community outreach approach to tackling inequality and long-term poverty issues in disadvantaged communities. EtF’s mission is to support disadvantaged people in Ireland, with the determination and ability, to successfully complete university. Long-term, EtF plan to develop social student housing accommodation across Ireland.
Anyone can volunteer; you do not have to be a UCD student. You can find out more about the volunteering opportunities on our social media (videos and posters are up across our Facebook, Twitter and @the_entstagram on instagram!) as well as in our info session on January 28th, 6-7p.m.
