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.

These events provide support and guidance to organisations that want to provide volunteering opportunities, traineeships and employment placements for young people involved in the European Solidarity Corps. We will be scheduling these to start in 2019. Check back here for listings.

Derval and Cecelia had a great first day on their course '#Learn, experience and create #art' in Nicosia. Spent time in the studio of Nikos Papaloukos and the A.G. Leventis Gallery learning all about art in Cyprus (and further afield). #erasmusplus @Leargas Retweeted by Léargas
