Tipp woman says Eurodesk helped open her mind to the world

Young people in Tipperary aged between 13 and 30 are being reminded of the help that is available if they want to travel, work, study or volunteer in Europe.

Eurodesk Ireland provides free information on all of the above and, as the organisation it’s affiliated with has offices throughout the continent, they should be able to answer any questions you may have.

A good place to start discovering what opportunities are open to you is http://www.eurodesk.ie/about.html.

One of those who availed of the supports on offer was Tipperary woman Mairead Maher, who went to Finland through the European Voluntary Service (EVS) scheme.

She believes the time she spent in the Nordic country ‘opened her mind up to the world’.

Mairead, along with Natasha Downey, Kristia Koupi, Akilas Mitkas and Youth Work Ireland Tipperary’s Pauline Strappe, give their views on the benefits of taking part in the multitude of European mobility projects that are on offer in a video made by Brian Desmond from the Léargas Communications team with interviews by Malgorzata Fiedot-Davies.
