February Digital Youth Work

A summary of just some of the work we've been doing over the last month online...

Creative Packs
We delivered creative packs to young people with activities from making pizza to decorating cakes to making your own lava lamp. Young people decided if they wanted to take part on Zoom or just send us a photo of what they made. It's been great to interact with young people in this creative way!

Throughout the month of February we continued to use the PlayStation to engage young people on Fortnite and Fifa using the Party feature to check in with young people and play games as a group.

Each week we've been engaging with families in Inchicore to play Bingo on Zoom. It's been great fun with the help of DJ Bren to engage with families & young people during lockdown.
