Comhlámh's What Next Course

What Next? A course for returned volunteers
Have you recently returned from volunteering overseas? Are you considering 'what's next' in terms of your engagement in development? We have the course for you!
What Next? is a course for returned volunteers. The course will take place over a residential weekend (in an eco village – all expenses covered!) and 2 separate days.
Throughout the course, there will be a chance to share overseas experiences with other returned volunteers, to make connections and to explore the endless possibilities of ‘what’s next’ after an overseas experience. There will be ongoing support and mentoring throughout the course, including support in animating an action project.
‘What Next?’ is a course for returnees who have lived and worked overseas in the capacity of learner, volunteer or development worker, and who are interested in continuing engaging in development education from Ireland.
What is covered?
The 4-day course will engage participants in a critical process to explore development issues and skills to raise awareness and take action locally. An outcome of the course is that participants will have the opportunity to develop and deliver an Action Project either individually or as a group around a particular issue or idea.
How much does it cost?
The course will cost €60 per person, which covers all training materials, accommodation costs, meals and refreshments.
