“Creating safe learning spaces… valuing people and communities.”
For ten years Glencree offered learning opportunities about Peacebuilding and Reconciliation to primary, secondary schools and youth groups.
Through a series of one-day or two-day programmes, young people visiting Glencree explored their understanding of themselves, others, and their relationship to communities at local, national and global levels.
Workshop activities connected to the Education Curriculum at levels appropriate to the age and subject range of each group.
Glencree offered five specific programmes tailored to the needs of the education curricula. However, we also designed and deliver specific modules based on individual group needs when required.
