The Youth Leadership Programme was established to help build positive futures for young people who have the potential to be leaders in their community but vulnerable to involvement in high-risk and criminal activity. Co-operation Ireland is currently delivering two Youth Leadership projects, one in the Kilwilkie area of North Lurgan and the other in the Greater Shantallow area of Derry/Londonderry. The programme aims to divert participants from crime and anti-social behaviour by providing them with a support structure to address personal and social challenges in their lives. Key outcomes include personal development, building pathways to further education/employment, and promoting belonging and participation in the wider community.
