Week summer internship in Dublin
Students will be selected

The most cosmopolitan, international, and progressive city in an increasingly diverse and global Ireland, Dublin retains the rich literary and social heritage, humor, and attitude for which it is famed. With a young, educated population transforming and regenerating some of Dublin’s older districts, it is an exciting time to live in the city.

As a Douglass-O'Connell Global Intern in Dublin, you will spend June 14 to August 10, 2024 participating in a work placement in an Irish organization and receiving academic credit in Irish history and culture with a special exploration of the influence Daniel O’Connell had on Frederick Douglass and their lifetime legacies as successful businessmen and leaders of social change.
The program pays tribute to Frederick Douglass’ transformative experience visiting Ireland more than 175 years ago, when Douglass was embraced by the Irish people and met the famous Irish reformer, Daniel O’Connell. This immersive opportunity celebrates their exceptional contributions to society and their notable business acumen, inspiring young professionals to emulate their success and apply their principles in the modern world. Co-sponsored by CIEE, the Government of Ireland, and the African American Irish Diaspora Network, the program pays homage to these distinguished figures by integrating the values of equality, entrepreneurship, and advocacy into a dynamic and educational internship experience.
The 2024 Douglass-O’Connell Global Interns will take a three-credit academic course in Irish History and Culture with a special exploration of the influence Daniel O’Connell had on Frederick Douglass and their lifetime legacies as successful businessmen and leaders of social change.
