The National Youth Council of Ireland (NYCI) launched a 10-part video series today (07.03.13) on equality and inclusion in youth work. It looks at issues such as working with Travellers; how young people can support others around mental health; the experiences of LGBT young people, minority ethnic young people, young parents and more.
“Anyone working on or interested in these issues will find the video shorts offer a fresh perspective and a creative way of engaging young people with issues of inclusion and equality,” said Anne Walsh, NYCI Intercultural and Equality Project Officer.
Each short clip in the issue-based video series, supported by the Equality Authority, can be used as a standalone resource to raise discussions within youth groups, or in conjunction with the free online resource Access All Areas: A Diversity Toolkit in order to embed diversity within youth groups.
The first video, released today, looks at ‘equality’ – and asks young people what it means to them. It can be viewed on www.youth.ie/act_on_inclusion where a new video will be posted each month over the next 10 months.
