What is the Youth Advisory Group?

The NYCI Youth Advisory Group (YAG) was set up in 2004 to advise the Development Education programme on its work and to keep it relevant to Young People. The YAG is open to young people aged between 16-20 years of age involved in youth work from anywhere in the country. NYCI gains the benefit of a youth perspective and the young people benefit by being trained up in development education issues and working with like minded people in a fun environment.The group meets three times a year. Regular meetings usually take place on Saturdays in Dublin city centre. Once a year a residential meeting is held for a weekend.
