NYCI is delighted with last week’s announcement of a regularisation scheme for undocumented people living in Ireland. The scheme, although limited to the next six months, brings rights and justice to about 17,000 residents, including 3,000 children and young people, who all call Ireland home. For many, it is their only home.
We are looking for young people who might identify as second generation Irish (a child of one or more parents or care givers who were born overseas or are 1st generation immigrants) to participate in an online focus group with us and 3-4 other young people.
NYCI is inviting tenders from suitably qualified evaluators to work on a consultancy basis from January 2021 to evaluate the impact and success of our Making Links project and to provide recommendations on the future development of the project.
We have seen a wave of reaction to the death of George Floyd that all of us working with young people are trying to get to grips with. We are asking: What can I do? What can I say? How can I support the young people of colour in my youth group?
