Smashing Times received funding to run four workshops to develop and deliver the Equality Ambassador Peer Leadership Training programme suitable for young people from diverse communities. The programme uses creative processes to promote awareness raising and skills development for young people, training them to become Equality Ambassadors so they can go on to become leaders in society, promoting human rights, equality, diversity and LGBTIQ+ rights within the wider community.
We delivered training to four youth groups in schools and third level education:
St Paul’s CBS North Brunswick Street, Dublin 7
Stratford College co-educational School 1 Zion Road, Rathgar Dublin 6
TU Dublin Conservatory of Music and Drama, Rathmines, Dublin 6
