Voluntary Service International (VSI) is the Irish branch of Service Civil International (SCI), a world-wide movement working for peace and international understanding through the medium of voluntary work, international exchanges and awareness programmes.
Volunteer Abroad provides opportunities for Irish residents to work on community-based projects in several developing countries. This programme is open to people over the age of 18 who are motivated and have a desire to learn.
Volunteering Options programme (set up by Comhlámh in 2004 and funded by Development Cooperation Ireland) was established in response to the growing interest among the Irish public in volunteering overseas in developing countries for short periods of anything up to a year. Comhlámh has provided advice and orientation for people interested in overseas development work for over 30 years.
