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.

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. 

Activating Citizens –Municipalities Making Use of the European Solidarity Corps

Germany (Online) 27-28 April 2021

Aims: The main aim of the event is to motivate and support municipalities to make use of the possibilities of the European Solidarity Corps Programme. It aims to illustrate multiple advantages for municipalities to encounter their local needs, activate their citizens and to strengthen their (twin town) networks.

Target Group: The seminar offers many opportunities for participants representing municipalities and municipal organisations, which want to bring a European dimension to their youth work and citizenship activities. Opportunities for municipalities that want to strengthen their existing networks with other partner-towns or twin-cities by involving the young generation will be part of the seminar as well. Youth organisations are highly recommended to apply together with a representative of municipalities as a tandem.
