Local Children and Young People ‘Voice’ On Their Future
On 7th November the Developing Our Young Leaders programme launched their local action plans. The event, which was held in the Bann Gallery at Cloonavin was very well attended by local children and young people along with their group leaders who are currently engaged in the programme. The young people attending showcased their project activities which included the preparation of local action plans in which the young people identified issues as being relevant to them and how it affects them in their community. The event also included an opportunity for networking with other youth groups and included chance to learn DJ skills from local DJ, Gleave Dobbin!
The DOYL programme is being delivered by Copius Consulting and features over 300 children and young people aged 14-24 across the Causeway Coast and Glens have been coming together to learn how to engage positively within their communities whilst improving and developing relations with others across the council area. Due to run until September 2019, the programme is part of Causeway Coast and Glen’s £3.8m Local Authority Action Plan, which has been funded by the EU’s PEACE IV Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB).
