Youth 19

Following the record breaking engagement with over 10,000 young people in 2016 as part of the #eyc19 campaign , Derry City and Strabane District Council and its partners gave a commitment to pursue a dedicated Youth19. 

Youth19 is a year dedicated to young people aged 12-24. Derry City and Strabane District Council (DCSDC) will work with young people and partners to:

  • Promote the voices, needs, priorities and rights of young people;
  • Highlight the positive contributions young people make to our community;
  • Supporting young people to take a leading role and Make.Change.Happen.

Youth19 will deliver a range of exciting opportunities for young people to get involved and Make.Change.Happen.

  • Promote positive health and wellbeing;
  • Actively promote the meaningful engagement and participation of young people;
  • Develop skills and provide clear career pathways.




Council will be investing £500,000 in young people during Youth19.  In addition, Council are working with partners to access a range of additional funding streams such as PEACE IV  and Big Lottery  to support young people in the council area.
