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 normally held on Fridays in Dublin, from 9:30-4 pm. Due to Covid-19 and the restrictions this course is currently being delivered online over a one-week period.

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 2021/2022.  The dates will be dependant on COVID-19 restrictions lifting.


A week-long online activism work experience course will commence in the first half of 2021/22 school year.
