The allure of a summer abroad is something that plenty of Irish people take advantage of each year, with the US being one of the most popular destinations. Sometimes all it takes is the right opportunity to present itself.
One such opportunity comes from USIT's Coach Soccer USA programme. For the aspiring coaches amongst us, the idea of spending sunny days getting invaluable coaching experience is definitely a tempting one.
You don't need coaching experience, you just need to be good with kids and love football. The best part is that even if you aren't studying, you can still apply - this opportunity is open to anyone between 18 and 30.
Check out the video below to learn more about this unique opportunity from Fintan, who went on USIT's Coach Soccer USA programme last year:
Interested? So the deal is, you'll need to attend an assessment before getting hired, and the cost starts at €999. That includes flights*, visa, accommodation, meals and medical insurance.
If you like the sound of this but also wanted to travel too, you can get 30 days at the end of the contract to see the US. Score!
