Holding Space Network

June 11 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm IST

NYCI’s Equality and Intercultural Programme is bringing ethnic minority youth work leaders together to create a network of youth leaders. Our aim is to create a space of support, of sharing with other ethnic minority youth workers, building a learning, upskilling and reflective practice space. 

What is ‘Holding space’ – Supporting youth work through a minority ethnic lens?

The purpose of this network is to bring together ethnic minority youth workers and volunteer youth leaders to encourage thought leadership for a diverse youth work sector.  Through four events per year, via workshops and peer to peer learning opportunities, ‘Holding space’ aims to build solidarity, share capacity, and foster meaningful connections.

Some might ask…. Why?

Being a minority ethnic youth worker/leader has many challenges, particularly in accessing opportunities, networks and supports. ‘Holding Space’ aims to fill this gap and form a network where minority ethnic practitioners share and reflect on their experiences in the sector and in connection to the wider social context.


  • 4 events/meetings per year
  • Through workshops and peer to peer learning, exploring needs and tackling challenges
