About Our Office

EIL Intercultural Learning is an Irish "not for profit" organization which provides intercultural learning opportunities  through study abroad, volunteer abroad, language training,travel awards, group educational programmes, and other cultural immersion activities for about 2,000 people each year.

The Mission of EIL Intercultural Learning Ireland is: To provide intercultural learning experiences which enrich lives, promote understanding of other cultures and challenge individuals to be more globally aware and responsible.

The work of EIL Intercultural learning is underpinned by a set of core values and guiding principles which include the organization's not for profit status, its commitment to the safety and well being of all participants and its endorsement of the principles of equality, inclusiveness, sustainability and diversity. At all times EIL strives to achieve the highest standards and to employ best practices.

Based on principles of experiential learning ( learning by doing) EIL programme's are designed to provide tools to survive and thrive in another culture or in a different language, to foster personal development, to build communication and leadership skills, and to be active citizens in an interdependent world.

In short, the aim of EIL Intercultural Learning is to enrich lives and inspire global citizenship.
