During the Basecamp part of the event, the Tribes will have the opportunity to travel to Dublin for a one-day event and experience a wide range of activities designed around the Irish culture, arts and music, diversity, community, outreach programmes, and much more. 

The Area Lead, in collaboration with their team, will take ownership over the development and delivery of the programme area.

Time Commitment and Terms

We require good standing checks to be completed by every candidate. Please refer to "How to apply" page in the menu.
