"My programme with EIL Explore was a life changing experience which broadened my horizons and gave me a different perspective of the world. Now, more than ever, I feel empowered to make a change in our society and share my experiences with other people." (Diana, 2016)
EIL Explore funds overseas intercultural learning adventures which challenge participants to become global citizens.
EIL Explore is a programme that supports participants with an interest in global issues to travel abroad for the purpose of volunteering, cultural immersion, or language education through a variety of awards. Operating for 23 years, 2017 will be our most successful year with a fund of over 120,000 Euros set aside to sponsor 39 Explorers.
Awardees use their experience overseas to learn more about the global community in a supported environment that challenges them to grow personally. The vision is that upon their return to Ireland, Explorers will have grown as individuals and will use this wonderful learning experience to be agents for change in their local community advocating for a more globally just society.
