The 5th Space experience is central to all the work at CYC. Our strategies include a) Developing powerful public engagement initiatives and journeys b) Producing and disseminating research and media products in the field of youth work c) Building coalitions and collaborations with national and international organisations to strengthen the field.
Our mission is to facilitate engagement of youth in social change action through building understanding, acceptability and demand for 5th Spaces across stakeholder groups.
