Meet the winners of the 2014 EIL Travel Awards

We're delighted to announce the winners of the 2014 EIL Travel Awards. This Summer, we will send 19 people on amazing intercultural learning experiences to locations all across the globe. Most will volunteer, some will share Irish culture while learning about the culture of their hosts and others will experience and learn about youth activism. All will have a Summer of a lifetime!

The Travel Awards aim to provide an experience beyond tourism, an experience that encourages open mindedness, global awareness and self improvement.
