The STAND society brings together Maynooth students who have a passion for justice and equality. Society members have the opportunity to explore the biggest challenges facing the world today, to connect with like-minded people to bring about positive change in the world, and to develop long-lasting personal and professional skills. STAND members can avail of the societies full programme of training and events, including the 8x8 Festival, the Global Issues course, The Ideas Collective workshops, talks and panel discussions with distinguished guests, the Diverge podcast and STAND News. Moreover, you can also volunteer in Ireland and Internationally through our sister organisation, Suas. And we offer regular internships throughout the year.
