Long Term Volunteering
This programme focuses on young adult leaders aged approximately 18–30 who are interested in being exposed to the broad continuum of peacebuilding practices and services offered at the Centre. Not only do our volunteers develop professional skills through a practical and theoretical training programme, they also acquire a range of transferable skills that build transformative leadership capacity for work in a variety of settings. Dependent upon your skill sets and readiness, you may work to support the Centre’s hospitality infrastructure, outreach programming, and/or design and facilitate programmes for visiting groups.
As an international site for training and skills development, the Volunteer Programme provides practical hands–on opportunities for volunteers locally and from around the world to learn alongside and in support of Corrymeela’s on–going efforts to embrace difference, heal division, and enable social reconciliation. Living within a community of people with varying degrees of interests and involvement in peacebuilding – engaging in mutual learning, and having opportunity to integrate theory, practice and research can strengthen your capacities and resilience. You will leave with the knowledge and tools necessary to make a genuine, constructive and ongoing change in your own community.
