The Equality and Intercultural Programme at NYCI is here to support you to embed equality, inclusion, diversity and interculturalism in your youth work setting.
We provide a unique and innovative suite of training programmes, resources, policy development, advice, and networking opportunities. We have carried out research to support youth work organisations to engage more effectively with young people from minority ethnic backgrounds. Central to our work is hearing the voice of young people furthest from the mainstream. NYCI members are invited to join our Equality and Inclusion Support Network.
