GOLDEN GLOBE NOMINEE JAMES NESBITT LAUNCHES THE CO-OPERATION IRELAND FUTURE LEADERS’ PROGRAMME

“The Co-operation Ireland Future Leaders’ Programme is so pivotal at this time.  It is about investing in young people.  It is about investing in the future”.

Golden Globe nominated actor Jimmy Nesbitt has launched a new youth programme designed by Co-operation Ireland to equip the next generation of leaders in society. The leading peace building charity has designed a Future Leaders’ Programme to give a voice to young people who, according to a Survey, say they are passionate about playing a part in society but fear a lack of employment will undermine their future.

Co-operation Ireland has recruited a significant number of private Ambassadors from business communities across this island as well as from Britain and the United States to fund the new programme which was launched in November. Their financial and hands-on programme delivery support will provide Co-operation Ireland with the independence required to enable our young people to lead in how the programme is designed and delivered.
