The application process is now opened for Crosscare Migrant Project's innovative migrant political integration scheme 'Opening Power to Diversity'
The successful Opening Power to Diversity (OPD) scheme matches volunteer migrants and new Irish citizens with TDs and Senators. The OPD scheme which was launched in 2012, and is now in its fifth term, has been endorsed by the Taoiseach as 'an innovative way to involve immigrants to our country in its political life'. Over a six month period beginning in November 2014 participants will get a unique and valuable experience and insight into how politics works in Ireland by observing and assisting the TD or Senator in his/her daily work.
