TY Work Experience & Activism 


Become empowered with the skills, knowledge and strategies to be a powerful change-maker in your community. UNICEF offers young people the opportunity to participate in local activism through our week-long activism training programme. This is ideal for a Transition Year Work Experience Week or Volunteerism week. The course is held on Fridays in Dublin, from 9:30-4 pm.

At the end of the first day, you will have created your own action plan to deliver in your school or community over the following week. This course can work well for students who live outside Dublin, as most of the week is spent in your school or community.

Please note – We do not yet have dates for in-person training for 2020/2021.  The dates will be dependant on COVID-19 restrictions lifting.


We are doing an online work experience course running from the 12th of October to the 16th, that will cover advocacy and activism through a range of topics from global wealth inequality, racism and discrimination, gender equality, climate action and sustainability. Please email vivienne@unicef.ie if you are interested in taking part.
