What we do

‘Coloured Glasses’ refers to the well-known analogy of the ­ sunglasses which represent the cultural filters through which we observe and interpret reality. In Youth For Understanding, Coloured Glasses has come to refer to a set of workshops designed to build young people’s cultural self awareness, leading them into cultural understanding by introducing them to the concepts of stereotyping, prejudice and discrimination.
