Youth in Government is our flagship politics project for 16 and 17 year olds. This exciting course offers participants the chance to work closely with others from diverse backgrounds, to learn about interesting issues, to meet with politicians, and to travel to the Stormont Assembly, Leinster House in Dublin and the Houses of Parliament in Westminster.
The group meets weekly on Wednesday nights at Belfast YMCA. Each week the participants will explore an issue relating to local, national and global politics. These issues include justice, conflict, campaigning & lobbying, and victims issues.
