Peace Bytes official launch in Moville 15.08.18

PEACE Bytes invites you to join them at their official launch on Thursday, 16th August from 1pm in Moville & District Family Resource Centre at Jamesís Street, Moville.
The Peace Bytes initiative is a new cross community programme for young people in Derry/Londonderry, Newtownabbey and East Inishowen.
Funded through the European Unionís PEACE IV Programme and the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB), the aim is to provide support and training for marginalised young people across all communities.
Through the projectís unique use of Creative ICT - developed over 25 years of experience - alongside standard and creative youth work methodologies, Peace Bytes aims to address barriers to positive, physical and mental well being, providing support to help young people become community leaders and promote peace and reconciliation in their local community.
The project provides a safe environment for participants to express themselves and opportunities to meet with their peers from across community divides, finding common ground and learning from each other.
Young people, aged 14 to 25, who complete the programme receive a minimum of 3 OCN qualifications. In addition, Peace Bytes provide childcare and transport when required, as well as a financial incentive for those who are eligible.
On Thursday, 16th August, Peace Bytes will be celebrating the initiativeís official launch at a series of events at their centres, where work from the first cohort of participants will be on display and information will be provided about the delivery of the project over the next four years.
