‘Youth in Action’ Programme 2021
The ‘Youth in Action’ programme, an inspiring Good Relations youth programme empowering young people to become the leaders of tomorrow, was delivered in partnership with the Rio Ferdinand Foundation. It focussed on tackling inequality, racism and sectarianism through accredited leadership, skills and vocational training, and ensured that everyone feels they belong in a district that is welcoming, shared and inclusive.
Twenty seven young people of different age and gender, from across the community and the district participated in this unique youth programme. It included an online and face-to-face training as well as a cross-border football tournament.
During the programme, the participants had the opportunity to learn practical youth leadership and sports coaching skills, explore mental health and resilience, experiment with film-making, meet influencers like former Chelsea FC star, Paul Canoville, and Northern Ireland international, Ashley Hutton, make new friendships and gain the confidence to be the next generation of youth leaders.
