“Young people, when informed and empowered, when they realize that what they do truly makes a difference, can indeed change the world.” Dr Jane Goodall

 

With almost three quarters of NICVA members working to promote positive community relations, it remains a substantial area of work for the voluntary and community sector in Northern Ireland.

Throughout the decades, the voluntary and community sector has been the avenue for many difficult discussions and forward-thinking decisions with regards to community, rights and inclusion. The sector has been at the forefront in leading on these issues and providing services to enable a shared and inclusive society.

Join NICVA as we celebrate Good Relations Week 2021 with an online event examining the role of the voluntary and community sector in supporting good relations amongst Northern Ireland’s young people. We will hear from Chris Quinn, Director of the Northern Ireland Youth Forum and Cherith Cummins, Co-Ordinator of Include Youth Strive Programme, as well as from young people who have benefitted from the work of voluntary and community organisations.
