Meet our Team

Daiga Martins Borges

Daiga is Volunteer Programme Manager and started working with us in 2012. She first came to Ireland in 2004 when she was taking a year off from studies. Having worked and travelled extensively across the island, she returned to Latvia in 2006 where she completed BA (Honours) in Political Science from University of Latvia. Inspired by Irish culture, history and people, she carried out a comparative political-economic research on Ireland and Latvia as part of her undergraduate thesis.

Since her return to Ireland in 2009 she has completed various further education courses and volunteered with Carlow Citizens Information Services and Carlow District Credit Union. Daiga thoroughly enjoys her volunteering experience as she always had a great interest in social inclusion and interculturalism issues and most importantly because she has seen peoples’ lives being changed for the better. Daiga started her internship with Carow Volunteer Centre in 2011.

Who runs Event Volunteers?

Who runs Event Volunteers?Event Volunteers is managed by Fingal Volunteer Centre.  We work in partnership with and have a closing working relationship with a number of Departments in Fingal County Council, namely; The Events & Emergency Management Unit, Community, Culture & Sports Division, Economic Development Unit and the Heritage Office.

As part of any event we work closely with Event Promoters, Event Managers and Event Organisers to ensure that the volunteers have a positive experience of an event and that the overall objectives of the event are met by sucessfully engaging volunteers.

The team at Event Volunteers, and indeed our volunteers themselves have a broad range of experience of managing other volunteer events in the past.
