The National Youth Council of Ireland (NYCI) and YMCA Ireland have teamed up to provide a FETAC accredited development education training course to youth workers.
NYCI’s vision for development education training within the youth sector is one where youth work practitioners are given the opportunity to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to deliver quality development education, inspiring the young people with whom they work to act for a more just and equal world.
The aim of the 'Global Justice in Youth Work' course is to increase the capacity
of youth workers to enable young people to make a meaningful contribution to a more just and sustainable world.

brings to existing youth work practice in achieving organisational aims

interconnectedness of the world locally and globally

which influence young people's experience of life and the experience of a

challenges of incorporating many different perspectives.
• Create the possibility for youth workers to enable young people to consciously
and actively participate in shaping the world
