Dundalk Youth Centre are launching a new innovative Programme for young people who are 16-18 who are not currently at school, in a training programme and who are not working.
The aim of the programme is to help young people get up and get back involved in their education and ready for future employment.
The programme will take place over a 10-week period and is designed to be flexible and meet the needs of young people who found it difficult to remain in full time education. Through a series of training, mentoring and support sessions the young people will develop new skills, will get back involved in education and will be more involved in their community.
The training elements will be focused on the interests of the young people themselves and can include film-making, web design, digital photography as well as more traditional skills.
A key feature of the programme is that participants have the option of registering and completing the Gaisce Presidents Award while on the programme which is nationally recognised.
The programme is open to young people all over North Louth and transport and other supports can be provided. To get more information and set up a meeting please contact the Youth Employability Coordinator Stacey McVeigh in Dundalk Youth Centre on 087-2961443 or firstname.lastname@example.org
