Get Involved

Want to get involved in Africa Day 2016? We’re currently looking for volunteers!

We are looking for enthusiastic and hard-working individuals to join our team for this year’s Africa Day Dublin flagship event! It is a great opportunity to get involved in an exciting event and to build your experience.

Volunteer duties typically include providing information to attendees, handing out programmes and maps, liaising with performers and groups involved in Africa Day 2016, as well as much more!

Following the event, volunteers will be invited to a special Irish Aid reception where each of you will be presented with a certificate of participation and appreciation. As well as this, all volunteers will get to keep their Africa Day t-shirt worn on the day in Farmleigh as a souvenir!

If this sounds like something you’d like to be involved in, or would like more information on, then download an application form here: Africa Day Volunteers 2016.

The deadline for submitting application forms for NGOs, Community Groups and Commercial Traders has now passed.

Thank you to all those who applied – we’re getting really excited for this year’s event and can’t wait to celebrate Africa Day 2016!

Africa Day 2016’s Dublin flagship event will take place on Sunday, 29th May at Farmleigh Estate in the Phoenix Park. The event will run from 11am to 6pm.

For more information you can get in touch with the Africa Day team at, or through our Facebook and Twitter pages.
