STAND celebrates the power of ordinary people to change the world. We support third-level students to stand up for justice and equality, learn more about important global issues, and find out what they can do to take positive action.

We do this by running a range of activities in collaboration with students at third-level campuses across Ireland. We are now looking to expand our team and build on our existing support to empower more students across Ireland to STAND for what they believe in.

We are a not-for-profit initiative run by the educational development charity Suas. Find out more about our available opportunities below.
