What we do
- We work with youth clubs and other community organisations to develop
active citizenship projects in local neighbourhoods.
- We work in schools to develop programmes that compliment the citizenship
- We work in museums in Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic with
groups of teenagers.
- We offer training (including an accredited model) in ‘civic youth
work’ to those wanting to gain or develop skills in working with young
people in a range of settings.
- We work with partners locally and around the world to promote the
development, evaluation and refinement of youth work focussed on civic
change in divided societies.
Examples of our work
- We have held two conferences on the theme ‘Talking Citizenship’, bringing
together educators and people from the private, public and political
sectors to develop thinking around the implementation of education for
citizenship in the formal and informal education sectors (reports available
on request or via our website).
- We are a key partner in the ‘Youth Work in Contested Spaces’ project,
linking youth workers, policy makers and researchers from conflict regions
around the world - see www.contestedspaces.org
- We created the WIMPS (Where Is My Public Servant?) website project
– established and maintained by a group of young people – see www.wimps.org.uk.
