Volunteer Abroad

EIL Intercultural Learning is an Irish not for profit organisation facilitating learning mobility programmes for over 2,000 people every year. Our Volunteer Abroad Programme offers flexible and varied opportunities all year round. Projects are available in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Our programmes involve supporting local community projects while learning about a new culture and gaining a new perspective on global issues. They are designed to foster intercultural learning, personal development and global citizenship. While our volunteering programmes are challenging by nature, our participants are supported by our staff in Ireland, as well as by local staff based overseas; both have years of experience in supporting international volunteers.
