- Youth and education
I am applying as an Individual Person
Working intentionally to achieve inclusion of marginalized groups by creating space and support to promote diversity consciously and consistently .
As a global youth worker, my work is rooted in actively working for inclusion and seek to provoke consciousness while assisting young people in their active engagement in relation to where they are at. My engagement is to work as a catalyst to amplify the marginalized young people’s voice so they can be heard. In my capacity as a Diversity and Inclusion Trainer I have developed and delivered workshops on Identity and inclusion under a human rights approach to increase cultural competency within diverse organisation. Training delivery has included anti-racism, intercultural dialogue for change, intersectionality & LGBTI+ awareness, for the formal and non-informal education sectors but also for organisation such as Doras, Traveller Visibility Group, Waterford Children & Young People’s Services committees (CYPSC) the Migrant Rights Centre Ireland, Social and Health Education Project (SHEP), WorldWise Global Schools, Waterford Wexford Education and Training Board (ETB).
I have been active with the Anna Lindh Foundation Irish Network since 2013. I co-coordinated the Cross-Network activity "Art as an Instrument and Expression of Social Change” in Taroudant, Morocco (2014). I attended the education programme for “Intercultural Citizenship in the Euro Mediterranean Region” in Alexandria, Egypt (2014). I represented the head of the Irish Network at the 13th Heads of Network Conference in Naples (2014). Presented on informal learning at the Cross-Network Action “Non-formal and Intercultural Education in the Mediterranean” in Tarragona, Spain (2015). I was assistant co-ordinator of "Intercultural Competences for Social Cohesion and Integration in Ireland" event in Limerick, Cork and Dublin (2016). Participant in Intercultural artistic expression in fragile areas, Sousse (2017). Anna Lindh Regional Training for Trainers - Malta (2017), attended the Euro-Mediterranean Conference on Intercultural Citizenship Education, in Piran, Slovenia, (2017). Participated in the 17th Heads of Network Meeting, Brussels (2018), Regional ToT on Intercultural Citizenship Education, Nicosia (2019). I am currently mentor for ALF Irish Network for the ALF Virtual Academy project and part of the Nicosia trainer’s symposium for the Pilot Virtual Training on Intercultural Citizenship Education in the EuroMed region.
In ground of the above mentioned involvement with the Anna Lindh Foundation , I always felt being part of the Network. This has permitted a better understanding of the countries in the Euro Mediterranean region but also created synergies and friendship. It is always energizing to work in collaboration with the committed people that never lose the hope to create a better world for all.
