Hands outstretched to anther | NICRC

Youth Link is inviting youth workers, teachers, volunteers, and other practitioners who work with young people to participate in Keeping the Peace – a conversation series that focuses on different aspects of peacebuilding and community relations. 

The Community Relations Council (CRC) supports Youth Link through its Core Funding Scheme.

Practical Reconciliation Project 

As part of the Practical Reconciliation Project funded by CRC, Youth Link will provide the space for practitioners to reflect on the progress made in Northern Ireland and consider how to continue to build together on the vision for a shared, inclusive, and flourishing community for everyone who calls this place home. 

Youth Link will capture the views shared and use these to inform the development of practical tools and resources that can support young people to explore peace and reconciliation themes in today’s context.

Good Friday/Belfast Agreement

The first conversation in the series will focus on the Good Friday/Belfast Agreement. April 2023 marks the 25th Anniversary of the signing of the Agreement, and this session will be an opportunity for youth workers, teachers, and volunteers to:

  • Reflect on the impact of the Agreement and take stock on where we are at now as a society
  • Share the challenges that are experienced by young people in our communities; and
  • Consider what is needed to address these challenges to improve outcomes for young people and build a sustainable peace.
