Ireland is a wonderful country; it is safe, friendly, rich in heritage, history and culture. From vibrant, exciting cities to spectacular countryside – it’s a magical place to visit. It’s also a wonderful place to stay and immerse yourself. The best part of an experience in Ireland is probably connecting with local people. Visitors find Irish people friendly, welcoming and very supportive. There is in Ireland a strong sense of community with many initiatives taking place at local level. CTL select very specific community based projects where participants can have an authentic and worthwhile experience. We are proud to promote Ireland abroad as the exciting, beautiful and welcoming country that it is and as an outstanding learning destination.
In Ireland primary school finishes around lunch time which leaves a lot of time for children in the afternoon. CTL is placing international volunteers in projects that proposes after-school services. These projects create a friendly, caring and professional service where children can learn and develop in a relaxed and loving atmosphere. They are committed to providing excellent standards of care and to providing life enhancing environment to support the fulfilment of each child’s greatest potential. Volunteers support project staff members and can get involved in various activities depending on their skills, interests and experience. Staff include qualified primary school teachers, computer and sports instructors. Volunteers generally help 3 to 4 hours per day, 5 days a week during school time. We recommend combining this volunteer work with another project to increase the duration of volunteer work. Combining two projects is a great opportunity to get involved in two different environments and increase the learning opportunities. During school holidays, volunteers can get involved longer hours in the project which runs day-long summer camps. Minimum time of commitment: 3 weeks. — Volunteer Work Volunteers can help in a number of areas: ? Helping children with homework ? Helping with Computer and IT teaching ? Facilitating sports activities ? Organising recreational activities and outdoor games ? Activities with children also i
