Connect-123, a leader in providing international internship, volunteer and study abroad programs, is pleased to announce the addition of a new location, Dublin, to their lineup of exciting international cities, which include Buenos Aires, Cape Town, Shanghai and Barcelona.
“We are excited to enter a new corner of the world with our internship and volunteer programs. By choosing to intern or volunteer in Dublin our program participants will get the opportunity to truly engage with a modern European capital with a wonderfully rich history,” said Steven Levy, Director of International Program Development with Connect-123.
Connect-123 offers unique internships in Ireland for college students, graduate students, recent graduates and experienced professionals. Options include Dublin environmental internships, with projects involving sustainable living practices, environmental education and awareness, and public policy around ‘green issues.’ Opportunities exist in other professional fields such as law, sports management, tourism and hospitality, and much more.
Connect-123 also organizes communications internships in Ireland. A nation of storytellers and literary giants, the Irish are masters of communication whether the medium is print, music or film. Exciting opportunities for international interns exist in publishing, journalism, public relations and media.
For those with a passion for non-profit or humanitarian work, Connect-123’s Ireland internships include opportunities in human rights, social work, public policy, environment and sustainability, and animal science and wildlife.
Connect-123’s Ireland volunteer programs are no less rich and varied. Education majors can add valuable career experience with education and teaching volunteer or youth development and sports opportunities. Animal lovers may choose to volunteer at a bird or seal sanctuary or at the Dublin Zoo. Other volunteer opportunities in Dublin include human rights, economic development and environmental positions; there’s an opportunity for each person who wants to give back to connect with their areas of interest.
Additional opportunities for international internships and volunteer programs are always available, and Connect-123 staff is pleased to work with participants to design exceptional experiences tailored to a participant’s individual interests and goals.
Connect-123 develops and administers career-related, challenging international internship, volunteer and study abroad programs for university students and graduates in a wide range of fields, including human rights, journalism, education, business consulting, entrepreneurship, health care and sustainable development. Through its extensive network of for-profit and not-for-profit organizations in Barcelona, Buenos Aires, Cape Town, Dublin and Shanghai, Connect-123’s local, on-the-ground staff can find specific opportunities for students according to their academic and career goals.
