Every year Amnesty International Ireland hosts a TY work experience programme, traditionally in the office where students join the team for week blocks, and more recently for a virtual TY experience. Young people apply in September and October each year for the academic year ahead.
Participants gain knowledge about human rights and our campaigns, and have the opportunity to engage with Amnesty staff, guest speakers and human rights activists. Participants also work together to act for human rights change, gain activism and campaigning skills, and insight into the impact of their actions.
Applications for the academic year 2021/2022 are now closed.
