Expand Your Horizons, Have Your Say and Make Youth Work Go Further

NYCI supports young people’s involvement in international activities, youth work and youth policy.

We aim to facilitate and promote the involvement of youth organisations and young people in international activities and to encourage youth organisations to include an international dimension to their youth work, through creating opportunities for sharing of best practice in youth work and facilitating international collaboration. We advocate and lobby on International and in particular European youth policy to ensure young people have an opportunity to add their voice to decisions that affect young people, their youth organisations and their future.


In Ireland the EU Youth Dialogue is delivered by NYCI through the Young Voices programme.

By using dynamic and innovative approaches in our engagement with young people and those who work with them we fulfil the objectives of the EU Youth Dialogue.

Encouraging participation, promoting equal participation, including diverse voices, strengthening young peoples citizenship competences and sense of belonging and ultimately brining about positive change.
