In addition to our annual Volunteer & Development Education programme, UCDVO offers two evening courses in the areas of activism and development education. These courses are open to everyone on campus; you don't need to be a current or returned volunteer to get involved.
'Be the Change' is a 6-week course commencing in October 2016. This course is aimed at individuals with an interest in activism and awareness raising in Ireland; no previous experience is required. The course is aimed at students, staff or alumni of UCD.
'Skills in Development Education' is an 8-week course commencing in January 2017. The course is aimed at returned volunteers (from any organisation) with an interest in building on their experience and learning from overseas. The course aims to equip participants with the skills and methodologies to work effectively with groups on global development and social justice issues in a friendly, informal environment.
