Community workers connecting, reflecting and acting: realising social change in Ireland

Community Work Ireland in association with the Department of Applied Social Studies, Maynooth University warmly invites you to participate in our summer school which takes place on Wednesday June 15th and Thursday June 16th in Maynooth University focusing on human rights based community work.

The Summerschool is designed to be a peer-led learning experience and is not a training programme in community work/community development. It is strongly advised that you have experience of working as a community worker for at least two years in a paid or voluntary basis.
