This programme helps students explore their role as citizens at a local, national & international level through interactive, hands on games & art activities.
Designed specifically to target social & development issues through experiential learning methods & to use various art media as a tool for discovery& exploration.
This programme was successfully delivered to both Transition Year & Youthreach students last year with facilitators, school teachers & especially the students themselves being impressed & surprised at the depth of the creative and educational outcomes and the positive team building effects the activities had on the groups.
