Learning and Sharing Event for Young Trans People

On Saturday December 1st Youth Work Ireland are inviting young Trans people from across Ireland to Dublin to gather and share their experiences of growing up young and Trans in Ireland (specifically rural Ireland).

This Learning and Sharing workshop will provide a safe space for young people to share and surface the issues, challenges and experiences they face growing up young and Trans in Ireland, by looking at scenarios they have experienced and sharing what has helped and supported them and what has not.

This will be the first of two events supported by the Department of Children and Youth Affairs as part of the LGBTI+ Youth Strategy Capacity Fund and will be facilitated by TENI.

The feedback and information evidenced by the young people will be developed into a booklet/guidelines which will be distributed to youth workers (and other who work with young people) to support them in their work with young Trans people.
