Colm Hickey, a volunteer Director of Education at JP2F4S, is also the organisation’s first Co-ordinator of Volunteers.

His role as Director of Education is to embed the ethos and philosophy of John Paul 2 Foundation into Catholic institutions throughout the country.
As the Co-ordinator of Volunteers he will be working with schools, clubs and parishes to train to run school, club and parish sporting activities that are community based, sustainable and in keeping with the vision, values, aims and objectives of the Foundation.
