TRAINING & EVENTS

Drama Techniques in Youth Work Settings

This tailored workshop is designed to address your needs as a facilitator by adding a range of drama processes to your youth work toolkit! It provides practical tips to ensure success and aims to enhance your creative ability, artistic skills and confidence when working with young people.

Transforming Hate in Youth Work Settings

This course is delivered by a team of Trainers who worked with the National Youth Council of Ireland, in partnership with 4 European organisations- Peace Institute (Finland), Ljubljana Pride (Slovenia), Interfaith Scotland (UK), Hamoment (Portugal) on an innovative Erasmus+ funded project exploring how to transform hate in youth work settings.

8 Steps to Inclusive Youth Work

Youth organisations can find it difficult to report on their inclusive youth work practice: “What should it look like?”; “Have we done enough?”; “Have we fallen short in some areas?”; “How do we do inclusion work in the context of other demands?”; “What are the key things we need to know to meet the key needs of minority and marginalised young people?”

CAMPAIGNS

NYCI in partnership with our member organisations and the wider youth work sector is running the “Youth Work Changes Lives” campaign from 2017-2019 to highlight the positive contribution of youth work to young people, local communities and Irish society as a whole

VOTE AT 16

NYCI believes that young people should have a greater say in decisions and actions that affect them and their community. We have been campaigning for Government to extend the right to vote to 16 and 17 year olds for local, national and European elections.
