YouthWorks | At the heart of YouthWorks (CIC) is the sincere belief that intercultural understanding & the development of global citizens is essential to our increasingly connected global world. We are committed to providing you with an intercultural experience that allows you to make concrete contributions to a community resulting in a deeper understanding of your role in the global community.

The values of YouthWorks (CIC) are the foundation on which all youth work is based within the organisation. Our young people are valuable human beings with a positive contribution to make to society. The organisation will offer young people the opportunity to grow up, develop social and life skills in a safe and secure environment, take on responsibility and make decisions on their own life styles based on sound information and support. Within YouthWorks (CIC) young people get the opportunity to take risks on their value base, challenge their opinions and explore their own value base without judgment or put down.
In the past volunteers have worked with the Crossing the Bridges Programme, which brings Catholics and Protestants together as well as various after-school programs with other youth groups.
