Event description

Description

10 years have passed since the youth sector in Ireland first discussed intercultural youth work in detail. Much has changed since then. A new generation of minority ethnic young people have grown up in Ireland, many of whom have engaged in and benefitted from a range of youth work opportunities. But have we, as a sector, realised the vision we set out and, more importantly, has it met the needs of the young people? Are there other approaches that the youth sector needs to consider?

NYCI invites youth organisations to join in a new conversation about the future direction of intercultural youth work based on the findings of our research. The research offers insights from 50 young people from 20 different ethnic backgrounds on their experiences growing up in Ireland. Key issues include Identity, Belonging, Exclusion, Racism, Leadership, Integration, and Parental and Community relationships.

We want to hear from the youth sector about your experiences doing intercultural youth work. We want to celebrate the successes and address the challenges. We especially invite minority ethnic led youth groups to join in the conversation.

We will follow a formal launch of the research with a seminar that will set the agenda for ongoing discussions into 2018. Young people from minority ethnic backgrounds will lead much of the discussion.

Agenda

Formal Launch: 10.30 – 11.30

Seminar: 11.30 – 3.30 Lunch will be served
