The Together project is unique in that it is carried out by trained young volunteers facilitating 'dealing with difference’ and leadership-building workshops, residentials and
conferences to fully professional standards. Beginning in December 2004, Together has worked with over 40 different schools from all educational backgrounds in the region. The key underlying
approach is to support partnership between teachers, senior and junior pupils to deliver learning through a balance of fun and serious discussion on the ‘contentious’
and sensitive issues of the community.
Strategically Together also offers ‘third-party’ support between schools in local area
learning communities and developing shared education activities through the
schools entitlement framework.
Together’s commitment to the safety of young people is paramount. A child protection policy in line with Children and Vulnerable Adults (NI) Order 2003, place all volunteers Spirit of Enniskillen staff are trained vetted through AccessNI accordingly.
