About Program

Serving alongside and living with the people of Ireland provides so many opportunities to converse with, hang out with, and explore with the locals. Grab hold of this unique opportunity to immerse in another culture like never before. Want to feel like Dublin is your new second home? Come with IPSL to Ireland!

The Republic of Ireland's capital has transformed itself over the last 20 years from a quiet, provincial city into a modern, thriving European city. Universities abound and create a youthful energy (about 35% of Dublin's population is under 25). Lively urban areas with ancient pubs, live music and restaurants mingle with historic churches and libraries, ancient ruins and beautiful green spaces.

COSA in Ireland and a Service-Learning Reflections & Practicum course anchors the academics in this program and provides a bridge of understanding between theory and the real world.

  • Volunteer with organizations dedicated to at-risk youth; early childhood education; Alzheimer patients; patients with mental and physical disabilities; the elderly and refugee and immigrant relief and assistance.
  • Explore community organizing and social activism with the goal of learning how to effectively translate these ideas and techniques into a concrete knowledge of social activism that can be applied across cultures, countries, and efforts.
  • IPSL, the founder of Service-Learning, is a global education institute within the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM.edu). They invest over 83% of their revenues directly back into the communities where they serve.
