Exciting Training Opportunity for Youth Leaders in Dublin & Glendalough

Everyone involved in youth ministry in Dublin & Glendalough, whether paid, voluntary or clergy, are invited to attend a youth facilitation workshop run by Tearfund. This is a two day programme and the first day will take place in St Mary’s Parish, Howth, on Saturday February 25 from 10am to 3pm. The training focuses on skills, knowledge and resources to help mobilise youth groups to act for a more just and sustainable world and has been widely praised.

As part of the training, the group will be joined by Ephraim Kahsay (pictured), the Country Representative for Tearfund in Ethiopia, based in Addis Ababa. His passion is to see people lifted out of poverty.

Ephraim has worked with Tearfund for the last nine years in the development, implementation and management of several ongoing programmes including self–help group work, church and community mobilisation, HIV/Health and livelihoods. The self–help group programme has been particularly successful and has seen over a million people lifted out of poverty in Ethiopia since 2002. Ephraim’s background is in psychology and he has extensive experience in group facilitation.

The training is being paid for by Irish Aid so there is no charge to participants but they are asked to bring a packed lunch.

Places on the course are strictly limited so book yours as soon as possible by calling the chairperson of Dublin & Glendalough Youth Council, the Revd Ruth Noble on (087) 0523450. The date of the second training day will be in March and will be finalised on February 25.
