Voluntary Service International is the Irish branch of Service Civil International (SCI), a worldwide peace movement that began in 1920. We work for peace, solidarity and social justice through volunteering and associated activities. We arrange volunteer projects in Ireland for Irish and international volunteers and send volunteers on projects to our branches and partners worldwide both on short-term (1-3 weeks) and long-term (up to 12 months). All our projects are with non-profit/community and voluntary organisations and we work in solidarity with local communities. We work with people of all ages and our focus is on young people. We also work through the EU -funded Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps programmes to arrange volunteering and non-formal learning opportunities for young people and those who work with them. Inclusion is important to us and we work on increasing inclusion through volunteering.
