Rural Youth CLubs & special interest groups
Youth Work Ireland Midlands' youth clubs provide young people with a safe place where they have a sense of belonging, where they have people who believe in them, and a place where they can form positive relationships with adults. They exist to assist in the personal and social development of young people so as to enable them take decisions, exercise responsibility and contribute towards the development of society.
We have a total of 18 clubs in communities all across Offaly and Westmeath. These local youth club are often the heart of their communities with young people, youth leaders, and adult volunteers coming together to be part of something important. Our youth clubs encourage participation and foster a sense of belonging for young people, as well as training and support for volunteers.
Special Interest Groups are supported with the provision of training, Garda Vetting, Insurance and Policy and Procedure updates and guidance.
