We hope to see you there!

Jen Garcin is Program Associate at Roca, Inc. (Boston, MA.) Founded in 1988, Roca helps to alter the life trajectories of America's most high-risk young people - the young people that are involved in crime, engaged in dangerous behaviours, have rejected help, have dropped out of school, and are simply too difficult for other programs to serve. Their mission is to disrupt the cycle of incarceration and poverty by helping young people transform their lives.

Ciara Egan is one of the young people in Future Voices, a youth empowerment charity which aims to level the playing field, empowering those from the most marginalised backgrounds to transform their own lives. She is 16 years old from Finglas and is in Transition year in St. Michaels Secondary School in Finglas. Ciara is a published author and her latest work is Three Timely Tales. She also represented Dublin at the National Student Enterprise Awards in 2015. She has a keen interest in the human rights of young people and wants the voices of young people in her community to be heard.

Ian Power is executive director of SpunOut.ie, a youth information website by young people, for young people. Ian has a special interest in the area of youth justice through previous work with young people in the borough of Hackney, London and having completed the Advanced Diploma in Juvenile Justice at the King's Inns last year. Ian is currently a professional fellow on the 'Rule of Law: Engaging Youth' programme at Boston College, funded by the U.S. State Department.

Deirdre Malone is Executive Director of IPRT. Previously a barrister in private practice, Deirdre worked on criminal defence matters in the Youth Court, Magistrates Court and Crown Court and then as a member of the inquest and prison law team. Deirdre has also worked in Liberty (National Council for Civil Liberties UK), in the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (Ireland), and as a researcher for the Irish Attorney General.
