(1) 'Games in Youth Work' CPD Programme - Engaging young people in climate action and development education

NYCI have announced an exciting new continuous professional development programme (CPD), 'Games in Youth Work', that will enable youth workers to use games to strengthen their practice while focussing on climate, environmental and development issues. Through a series of online lectures, group discussions and in-person workshops, which will take place between November 2019 and May 2020, youth workers will have access to an inspiring and creative space to reflect on and develop their practice with peers. The location for the face-to-face workshops will be decided on recruitment of participants so as to be as accommodating as possible to all. Find out more or contact STEAM@nyci.ie. The deadline for applications is 31 July.

(2) Léargas: European Solidarity Corps – Quality Label Workshops

Learn how your organisation could host or send volunteers, trainees or workers to help make a positive change across Europe!  The European Solidarity Corps funds and supports young people aged 18-30 to volunteer or work for the benefit of people and communities. Organisations in Ireland can host or send young people to carry out projects that foster solidarity in European society. The first step for any organisation to get involved is to apply for a Quality Label, to show it meets the quality standards of the programme. These workshops will explain how the European Solidarity Corps works, explore its mission and principles, and take you through the application process for a Quality Label. Find out more. Taking place 13-16 August, workshops are available in Athlone, Limerick, Dublin and Cork.
