Program Includes:

Costs depend on final arrangement. All interns and volunteers are placed directly at Charleville Castle near Dublin. But for many this will be the home base but they will be working at other locations in Dublin and elsewhere. We will work with all applicants to agree to a full budget. Applicants can opt out of some services when feasible thereby reducing costs or choosing to cover costs directly or as they arise. Flexibility is the key.

This is a not for profit program - cost recovery is all that is required.
