Youth Programme

Supporting Young People

We support local young people by providing opportunities to take part in national competitions in leadership, creative writing, visual arts, debating and culinary skills. Through these we help them develop their skills and confidence and to meet and make friends across Ireland and abroad. 

We also participate in Rotary International's scholarship programme which enables young people between the ages of 18 and 30 to undertake placements across the world or at home lasting anytime from from three weeks to six months. Placements may give vocational experience or humanitarian service or a mix of both. 

We are also available to schools to conduct mock interviews and provide constructive, encouraging feedback to students.
