Following a weekly schedule, you can do an internship/volunteer with one or more of the following organizations simultaneously and thus get to know a variety of aspects of work and Irish life:
Charity shops have a long tradition in Great Britain and Ireland. They are used goods stores operated by non-profit organizations, which are often to be found in prime locations in city centers and are heavily frequented. The goods are donated, sold in the shop and the proceeds fund the charitable work of the organization. Typical second-hand goods are books, clothing, furniture, and bric-à-brac.
As an intern/volunteer in a charity shop, you sell goods in the store and present the goods on the shelves. At the sorting office, you sort goods into different categories and repair and clean them for resale.
