Anthony Burrowes

 

Regional Community Connector, based in DCU

Anthony began his career working as a youth worker with diverse communities. He worked to empower young people to have their voices heard in decisions that would affect them.

Most recently Anthony was the youth and community outreach worker with Jigsaw Dublin City. He worked with communities and young people to change the way we all think and talk about youth mental health.

For the past four years, Anthony has represented the voice and concerns of young people of Ireland on the European Youth Forum (the largest youth advocacy platform in Europe).

Anthony has been an international trainer and has worked with a wide range of international organisations and educational environments.

Anthony holds a BA in Social Science and a Masters in Youth and Community Work.

He is passionate about working with seldom-heard people and making sure their voices are heard. Anthony is interested in working with communities either in a physical or online space. He is creative and strives to bring that creativity in to the work that he is taking part in. Anthony wants to work with communities to ensure that they have an opportunity to reach their full potential.
