Microgrants for Projects that Support Young People from Ukraine: European Year of Youth 2022


The European Year of Youth 2022 Microgrants scheme aims to shine a light on the great work that is already happening around the country during European Year of Youth, and support projects that address key European priorities. In response to the war, we have added a new priority for “Supporting young people from Ukraine.  Projects that look at aiding integration.  Projects or events that examine topics with young people such as democracy, solidarity or preventing disinformation.” This priority is specifically aimed at activity development that supports young people from Ukraine, those working with them and values that underpin the European Union.

There are four more deadlines throughout the year and the application process is straightforward. Find out more on our dedicated webpage or contact European Year of Youth officer Vasiliki Psarra.


Supporting the Linguistic Integration of Refugees from Ukraine: European Centre for Modern Languages


Teachers and others supporting the integration of refugees from Ukraine, both into school systems and into the workplace, can access guidance and resources on this dedicated website operated by the European Centre for Modern Languages. The site is a work in progress and new resources and information will be added as they become available.


Guidance Counselling for Ukrainian Refugees: National Centre for Guidance in Education


Our colleagues in the National Centre for Guidance in Education have developed a resource for Guidance Counsellors working in Further Education and Training or Adult guidance, to help them deliver appropriate and informed guidance. This resource takes account of psychological issues and social, personal, and educational considerations in supporting all individuals to navigate the Irish system and to facilitate inclusion, informed choice, and career development planning along the lifespan.
