Shared Voices

Combining VOICES of young people together from across NI

This My Voice Programme will allow young people to take part in activities exploring rights, and the chance to speak up and take action on key issues affecting young people in NI.

This will involve lots of fun activities using art, media, outdoor activities and workshops and those taking part can plan their own social action project on an area of their interest.

The programme is funded by TBUC and will involve a Good Relations Theme.
