STAND is a small charity with a big vision: to equip the future leaders and changemakers of Ireland with the tools, knowledge and network they need to make the world a better place. We believe there’s no better way to learn than to roll up your sleeves and get busy, so we provide opportunities for you to do just that!

Our interns don’t make coffee!

We provide flexible internships designed to give participants rounded professional experience in the not-for-profit sector. Write for STAND News, run your own festival, or bring the Global Issues course to your campus!


We’re always on the look-out for new people to join the team. Our editors and contributors believe in the power of sharing stories that celebrate and connect ordinary people doing extraordinary things to make the world a better place.  If you’re interested in writing, creating content, editing, social media, animation, photography or video, we’d love to hear from you. Say hello at or click below to find out about opportunities to work with us.


STAND believes in the power of education to tackle inequality and transform the lives of children and young people living in disadvantaged communities. That’s why we work with SUAS to provide opportunities for our members to volunteer in Ireland and internationally with quality educational interventions that have proven results.
