Opportunity for young people to get involved in the PASS Project
Armagh City and District Council’s Good Relation’s Team are currently recruiting young people to participate in their Promoting Acceptance in Society through Sport (PASS) Project. The aim of this programme is to “Use sport as a way of tackling social exclusion & influencing community development within the City & District.”
The PASS Project has been running for the last 4 years and has been very popular with young people from throughout the City & District. During the Project young people will have the opportunity to participate in a number of educational workshops which address good relations issues in sport such as sectarianism, racism, homophobia, disability etc, participate in a number of fun coaching sessions in different sports, attend a number of competitive matches in various sports and also attend a residential to both Glasgow and London.
During the residential to Glasgow young people will participate in a number of activities organized by the Old Firm Alliance Project. This is a joint initiative between Celtic & Rangers Football Clubs and it aims to use the powerful influence of football and the clubs to challenge bigotry and sectarianism. During the weekend the young people will have the opportunity to attend a Scottish Premier League Match, participate in a joint coaching session with both Celtic & Rangers football coaches; participate in an educational workshop on Racism & sectarianism by the Old Firm Alliance Project and receive a Stadium Tour of Ibrox and Celtic Park. While the residential in London will give the young people the opportunity to attend a number of good practice visits which will look at how different sports such as basketball, boxing, rugby and soccer have been used within local communities to improve community relations.
If you are between the ages of 13 and 16; live in the Armagh City and District; are interested in learning more about good relations and want to try new sports then why not get involved in the PASS Project?
The project will take place each Monday evening from 7pm to 9pm in Armagh starting from the 14th January to the 8th April 2013. To put your name forward for consideration for this programme or if you would like more information please contact:

Anti-bullying Help and advice
If you are being bullied, or you know someone who is, try following these tips:
- let someone, such as a parent, teacher, relative or friend, know you are being bullied
- remember that you don’t deserve to be bullied – the bully has a problem not you
- try to stay confident and positive and ignore the bully as much as you can.
