About the program:
Dublin and Galway, Ireland - The journey begins in Dublin, the capital of Ireland. You will experience a brief taste of the city and visit sites like St. Stephen’s Green, Grafton Street, Dublin Castle, Christ Church, and Trinity College. The second part of the trip will take you to the west coast port community of Galway, home of the University of Ireland, Galway (UIG). Here, you will become familiar with community life, community social workers, and participate in service learning projects and interactions with clients through the work of the Galway Hospice.
Finally, we will stay in the Burren, in the Irish village of Lisdoonvarna. You will learn about the unique differences between a large city, a small city, and a country village, especially in relationship to the Irish membership in the European Union. Tours and talks with community members will enlighten us about the history of social problems and social interventions.
