We’re recruiting youth workers across Northern Ireland and the border counties.

Empower 2 Transform is a new and exciting programme which will be delivered by some of our region’s leading Youth providers including YMCA Ireland, Youth Link NI, Youth Initiatives and Mencap NI.

Funded by PEACEPLUS through the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB), we endeavour to Empower young people to take Transformative steps in developing their confidence, skills and potential, form positive relationships with others of different backgrounds, and positively contribute to building a cohesive society.

The project is partnering with organisations, routed in local communities in Northern Ireland and the border counties all of whom have an extensive and rich history in the delivery of programmes which make a positive difference in the lives of young people, their families and their communities.

We are currently building a team of people from right across the region who are ready to use their skills, their experience and their passion to Empower Young People to Transform.
