Training Opportunities

Did you know that we can fund you to take part in training events that help you prepare, apply for and run European Solidarity Corps projects? Each year Léargas chooses a number of particularly relevant training events that people working in the Irish youth and volunteering sector can be funded to attend.

Relevant events will be listed here.

To apply to go to a training event, click on the link after the listing.  Léargas will then get in touch with you to let you know if your application has been successful.

Due to COVID-19 preventative measures, some events have been postponed until further notice. Please see the news item on our homepage for more information.
