The Action at Home is a central part of EIL Explore
As part of their programme, EIL Explorers must complete an Action at Home when they are back from their overseas placement. With the Action at Home, EIL Explorers take their experience and learning from abroad and share it with their community upon return. It is very flexible and open to a participant’s interests, skills and capacity.
The aims of an Action at Home:
- Help Explorers to get the most out of their experience – enrich your life
- Provide a basis for participants to actively process their experience abroad – self reflect
- Encourage participants to give back – be a Global Citizen
The Action at Home progresses with the participant throughout their EIL Explore experience. It starts once they are selected in April and finishes in October when the Action at Home report is submitted to EIL.
There are three types of projects for you to choose from: Explore, Connect and Voice. Check out ideas below for each type of project.
