Kathleen Lawrence is the first Traveller to be chosen for the Washington Ireland Program. This programme is a leadership programme to support emerging leaders and influencers who can help find solutions for the problems facing Northern Ireland and Ireland.
This year-long programme includes a summer semester in the US where participants stay with host families and carry out work experience in a wide range of areas.
Kathleen will be based, first in New York, and then Washington and will be sending reports of her experiences there. These experiences are designed to expose students to the new ideas and new ways of working in a challenging, stimulating environment. Biography of Kathleen here.
