Volunteer Abroad

EIL Intercultural Learning is an Irish not for profit organisation supporting local projects across the world. Our Volunteer Abroad programme involves living, working and making a difference in a local community while learning about a new culture and gaining a new perspective on global and development issues. We offer flexible and varied voluntary work opportunities all year round. Our volunteers are supported by highly qualified in-country staff with years of experience in intercultural exchanges and in supporting international volunteers.

Find out more about our approach to short term international volunteering.
