  18. 18. The Youth Bank and Conflict Transformation The peace-building value of YouthBank was first seen in Northern Ireland (NI) following over three decades of violent internal conflict. The potential to replicate this initiative was grasped by various organizations in the emergent states of the former Yugoslavia. They approached the Community Foundation for Northern Ireland (the home of YouthBank International in NI) to share the knowledge and expertise they had gathered.
  19. 19. YB BENEFITS YouthBank brings a range of benefits to young people involved, particularly as regards their skills, confidence, personal growth and development When YouthBanks are hosted by a larger organisation the latter benefits greatly. YouthBank members raise the organisation’s profile as they promote their own projects. Young people who benefit from YouthBank grants realise that they have the confidence and ability to make effective decisions, improve their local communities and become active citizens.
  20. 20. YB KEY INGREDIENTS The YouthBank model allows young people to take real responsibility through decision-making about the allocation of grant funds. It encourages young people to put their own ideas into practice through fund raising and budgeting
  21. 21. SIMPLE, FLEXIBLE FORMULA: Local young people are recruited, trained and appointed to act as grant makers. They decide on local priorities and develop application and assessment systems.Young grant makers are in the driving seat but are never alone: they receive all the support they need from YouthBank International and experienced national YouthBank coordinators when relevant.
  22. 22. Measurable benefits for grant makers: Grant recipients learn to implement their projects, plan their activities, manage their budget and promote their message through media outlets: Employability skills: decision making, publicity, communications and public relations, design and IT, project planning, financial literacy, negotiation, team work. Life skills: dealing with differences, enhancing cultural understanding, working as a team, negotiation
  23. 23. Benefits to local communities: • Makes young people’s participation real and positive • Benefits for the wider community: legacy of funded projects, assumptions about young people are challenged. • YouthBank is fully inclusive and encourages the participation of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds
  24. 24. FUN? – Of course!!!
