European Youth Work Showcase Event
On Saturday 13th May Youth Work Ireland along with its Member Youth Services hosted celebratory event to promote the value of participation in European funded programmes and initiatives. Youth workers and young people from across our federation have participated in various European funded programmes over the last number of years, and the impact and value of their participation is this event will showcase and evidence.
This event heard directly from youth workers and young people about the positive impact participation in European mobility and exchange programmes have had on their lives.
