Published: 06 NOVEMBER 2015

The Diversity Competent Leadership programme grew out of Community Relations focused youth work with groups of young people in the town of Coleraine, in particular the Coleraine Peace Programme and a Street Work project.

An evaluation of the work concluded that while it had been necessary and relevant at a particular point in time, and had successfully diverted some young people away from involvement in sectarian and anti-social activity, it was time for a change of focus. A key concern of the youth workers involved was that continuing the work might unintentionally promote dependency and disempower, rather than empower, the young people involved.
