NYCI is committed to supporting youth organisations to achieve more equal, intercultural and inclusive communities.

Presenting the tenth inclusion video in our Lets Act on Inclusion video series.

Each short clip in the video series, supported by the Equality Authority, can be used as a standalone resource to raise discussions within youth groups, or in conjunction with the free online resource Access All Areas: A Diversity Toolkit in order to embed diversity within youth groups. A new video will be posted each month.

Frances Fitzgerald TD, Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, unveiled the National Youth Council of Ireland’s Access All Areas: a diversity toolkit at a special event called Diversity Goes Cross Border, in June 2012.

NYCI developed a poster naming a number of issues that young people face on a daily basis in Ireland.  It asks if young people in communities throughout Ireland are experiencing some of these issues. It invites youth leaders to discuss this with their groups and to come to this website to learn more.

Please scroll down to the issue that interests you to learn more about it. Each of the issues is explained further and the resources you can use to explore the topic are suggested.

This new resource is based on the experience of intercultural youth work in 7 individual youth organisations based in Dublin. The stories express how they have each, in their own way, approached the 12 aspects or steps to good intercultural youth work practice.  

Full details of our trainings are available in our training brochure, which is available at They are also listed below.
All of these courses are available on request. 

Use this guide to make your youth service, club or project more inclusive. We hope this guide will help in reaching out to as many young people as possible in the local community and ensure they feel welcome to return as regular participants.
