Giving Youth a Voice
We are delighted to announce we are working with the Young Foundation to deliver their Amplify Youth programme in Ballymun.
Amplify Youth is a new programme for young people (aged 16-25) who want to make a difference in tackling inequalities in their communities. They receive coaching and mentoring, to develop an innovation that will make a positive difference in their communities.
Working in groups, local youths come together to better understand what is good and what is difficult for the people in their community and use this information to create an idea for a project that will make a big difference. They then take part in workshops to develop their ideas to the point where they are ready to launch, and finally showcase their projects to potential funders and supporters.
Groups from Youthreach Ballymun, Trinity Comprehensive, the Axis Theatre and the Ballymun Job Centre are involved in this programme.
