Diverse Youths Northern Ireland is a social group constituting youths from disparate ethnic groups. Its purpose is to give the BME youths the opportunity to see and appreciate their environment and the world around them.
We organize social activities to help them improve their standard of living and to build and improve their socio-communicative orientation and responsiveness in cultural environments foreign to their own. We also organize tech-activities to allow the youths, have a taste of what it is like to be in a particular tech environment. In a challenging world such as ours, it becomes difficult to choose a way into mature life. Theses activities give them an insight into what the future might hold and would become.
Keeping well is also one of our strategies and we are well aware of the current situation with youths finding it difficult to step away from their personal computers. In response to that, we try to tailor fun activities such as bowling, indoor football to help them spend some time away from their game consoles and PCs.
To improve communication in general, we also organise Television activities with the youth television where they can express themselves without fear or diffidence, thus, improving their general communicative abilities. Several TV sessions have been organised with Youth Space and have been very much appreciated by them.
