    Thanks for posting this Tessy - this is going to be a great course - Jerry is inspirational and has had great results with his 'Learning Dreams' approach, which focuses on adult learners within poorly functioning communities in Minnesota. He gets adults to re-engage in their own learning and in the process gets the community interested in learning which helps build better outcomes for children and young people as well as building the social fabric of communities. We are hoping to pilot this approach in Northern Ireland some time soon.

    We will also be running other short courses on our model of 'Civic Youth Work', the link between heritage and community, and youth work responses in conflicted societies - so please register on for updates!
