Youth Work with Young Travellers Conference

Showcase of International Practice in Youth Work with Young Travellers

Hosted by YouthAction NI, 14 College Square North Belfast. This event was part of KA2 Traveller Youth Work Project funded by Erasmus+ and aims at identifying, developing and sharing best practice approaches for engaging with, retaining and working with Young Travellers.

About this Event

The purpose of this event was to present findings from research, to share current understandings and insights of the lives of young travellers, and to showcase models of youth work practice in engaging young travellers. The audience consisted of young Travellers, settled young people, youth workers, policy makers and service providers.

It is hoped this event will support participants to consider the challenges and opportunities of doing inclusive youth work and to contribute to the development of a best practice approach for organisations, managers, policymakers and other stakeholders.

This symposium event is hosted by YouthAction NI, as part of an Erasmus+ Cooperation for Innovation and the exchange of good practices initiative.

This event comprises a strategic partnership made up of Youth Work Ireland, YouthAction NI, Involve and An Munia Tober.
