A core aspect of the mission of the Kylemore Abbey Global Centre is community outreach. The University of Notre Dame strives to help the local community and engage with local organizations to offer time and service. As part of all the programs conducted at the Global Centre there is the opportunity of volunteering in the community through various channels, with various local groups. This channel provides a wonderful opportunity to engage with the Irish citizenry in meaningful authentic ways. Please share with the director if this sort of experience is important to your program and the center will facilitate a volunteer project for your program.
If your organization would like to propose a service or community outreach project, please contact us.
Ireland is known as the isle of Saints and Scholars. Its position on the edge of Europe, a gateway to the continent, is nevertheless separated by the Irish sea. Our students are curious and adventurous people with a thirst for knowledge and new cultures so travel while studying abroad go hand in hand.
In an effort to offset the carbon footprint of flights to the continent we organise service days for our students to take part in conservation projects in Kylemore and Galway City.
