Causeway is a British-Irish exchange programme that aims to strengthen and improve relationships between young people, and those that who work with them, on the islands of Britain and Ireland.
Causeway projects promote working in a team and provide a valuable avenue for young people to explore their perceptions of identity and to deal with issues of tolerance and diversity.
Under Causeway, young people can become involved in:
|Benefits||With Causeway projects, the fact that there are no language barriers and relatively short distances to travel allow strong relationships to be built over time. Furthermore, the opportunity for contact exchanges and advance planning visits help prepare the young people for the challenge of a full exchange.|
|Funding||Yes; varies for projects|
