Local Committee

Local Committee


The local committee is a group of volunteers formed by students and graduates who have already been on an IAESTE traineeship, or plan to go in the future. The local committee members are enthusiastic about meeting people from different countries and showing them around Ireland, about the benefits of IAESTE as a life changing experience, and being brand ambassadors for the programme in their universities and on social media. They also represent Ireland in international conferences and at national events by sharing their experiences with prospective trainees.


  • Help and support the international trainees who come to Ireland and learn about different cultures and countries.
  • Explore Ireland from a fresh perspective by showing your country to trainees from around the world.
  • Make new friends from all over the world and become a part of a global network
  • Get involved with International Events and meet Local Committees from other parts of the world.
  • Share your experiences with your friends in your university and college and help more students take part in the programme.
  • Working for IAESTE will give you international volunteering experience adding a distinguishing dimension to your CV.
