About Voluntary Service International (VSI)
Voluntary Service International (VSI) is an Irish non-profit organisation working to promote social justice, sustainable development, and intercultural understanding through volunteering. Every summer we organise several volunteering projects with local communities in Ireland and welcome national and international volunteers to work together.
- Environmental protection in Killarney National Park
Would you like to spend 2 weeks in one of the most beautiful national parks in Ireland? Join our project on environmental protection in Killarney National Park and become one of a selected group of national and international volunteers allowed to spend a fortnight in the park!
Together with the park ranger, a team of 12 national, and international volunteers of all ages (+18) and backgrounds and 2 project coordinators work on woodland conservation in wild areas of the park. Evenings and weekends are free to explore the surroundings and breath-taking landscapes, enjoy a swim in the lake, etc.
There are no specific skills required. Interest in environmental issues desired, as well as open-mindedness and willingness to learn from new cultures.
