Youth Clubs: Delivering Serious Fun
Youth Work Ireland's Consensus Conference 2014

 

Youth Work Ireland's National Consensus Conference 2014 provides an opportunity for all concerned with youth clubs to engage in dialogue with one another with the purpose of identifying what is required to support the future growth of voluntary led youth work and to share experiences and provide evidence that youth clubs do serious and challenging work in a fun way!

The theme this year is Youth Clubs, and the important part they play in the lives of young people in Ireland today. We will also discuss with expert speakers policy related issues in regards to delivery of youth work through voluntary led youth clubs.

By far the vast majority of young people in Ireland who engage in youth work do so through parish or community based voluntary youth clubs.This conference will feature inputs from young people, volunteers, staff and key policy makers that will provide evidence that youth clubs do serious and challenging work in a fun way – work which has a transformative positive influence in local communities in both the rural and urban context.  A feature of this discussion will be the particular value of voluntary youth work in local communities and in the context of an Integrated Youth Service Model.
