Cappamore Youth Worker leads ‘SOS’ at Limerick Youth Service: Youth workers from across Europe recently spent a week as guests of Limerick Youth Service where they ‘Shared their Stories’ as part of an exciting new development in youth work. The youth workers, who hailed from places as diverse as Liverpool and Bulgaria took part in a training programme called ‘SOS – Share Our Stories’ ‘Storytelling isn’t just storytelling per se, it’s quite a reflective process where our stories form a basis to determine the youth work practice within them,’ said Eibhlis Bray, Limerick Youth Service. ‘The aim of SOS training is to share our experience of youth work with the hope that other youth workers would be empowered by it and take it back to their colleagues and young people’, added Ms. Bray, a native of Cappamore. ‘SOS’ evolved from Limerick Youth Service’s involvement with storytelling as a means of capturing the ‘cornerstones’ of youth work and the unique aspects that distinguish youth work in the human professions. During the week participants used different mediums to express their stories, engaging in puppet-making, graffiti art, song writing and film making. Away from the classroom the participants took part in a cultural evening and shared some of Limerick’s famed hospitality and culture, with some particularly intrigued with the Halloween festivities. Limerick Youth Services would like to thank all involved for their contribution to SOS, particularly the youth workers from United Kingdom, Bulgaria, Italy, Malta, Romania and Ballyfermot Youth Service, Dublin.
