In November 2015, the IIBN hosted an event with Co-operation Ireland in the Late Late Bar, New York City, which raised nearly $10,000 for the Irish peace building charity, attended by IIBN members and supporters of the charity.

The money raised is supporting the charity’s Youth Leadership Programs, which provides training to improve the lives of young people, helping them re-engage with others in the community and finding employment opportunities otherwise not accessible to them.

The IIBN Future Leaders Board is exceptionally proud to support the Youth Leadership Programs run by Co-operation Ireland and we continue to work together to support peace on the island of Ireland.
