Clubs are great , you get to meet new people, learn more about yourself, and have a bit of craic too. Because of this we’re going to help you find some because we’re great like that. Here are some of examples of the types of clubs there are in Waterford.
Why Should I Join a Club?
- Socialising – Joining a club is a great way to meet new people and expand your social group. Clubs have a considerable number of members, so you’re bound to hit it off with some of them. Plus, it’s likely that you’re meeting like-minded people who have similar interests.
- Networking – You will have the opportunity to meet and network with people who could know about certain opportunities and help you in future excursions. They may invite you to join in other activities outside the society and you will get to know even more people and maybe enhance your CV.
- Volunteer and enhance your employability prospects – As a group, you can be charitable and give back to the community that has given you so much or if you choose to be the President of a club or another role, you can log your time spent with your club as volunteering hours (through a Gaisce Programme). These can go on your volunteering record and be used to enhance your employability prospects.
- Promote awareness – They help promote learning and awareness about that field or sport. you can simply join a Club because you’re interested in what they do.
- Exposure – They expose you to real life experiences in the fields that you are interested in, further expanding your knowledge in your chosen field or by showing you things you wouldn’t think to be interested in.
- Regular activity – Joining a club also offers the chance for regular activity. We can get very lethargic at times, especially in winter, and find leaving the house a lot of effort. As a result, we end up staying at home feeling bored. If you go to weekly club meetings you’ll soon make it part of your routine. The more you do, the more energy you have.
- Enrichment: Being part of a student run organisation is an enriching experience. You owe it to yourself to at least try them out, how do you know if it’s useful or not if you’ve never tried?!
- Have fun – Your time as a young person doesn’t have to be all work and no play, joining a club could be your way of having fun during the day and alleviate stress.
