AXIS Community Youth Project (Ballybeg)
Ballybeg Youth Resource Centre
Clonard Park, Ballybeg, Waterford City
The Axis Community Youth Project is located in the Ballybeg Youth Resource Centre Ballybeg. The Project caters for young people between the ages of 10 and 21 at weekends and times when there is higher risk of anti-social behaviour. Staff and volunteers work alongside young people to deliver planned programmes of informal education that are designed to meet the young people s interest and needs. The Axis Project Creates young person centred safe spaces, where young people can make friends and form positive relationships, explore their place in the community and begin to picture themselves as valuable members of that community. The young people’s ideas are central to the work we do. The Axis Project is a place where young people can begin to explore the importance of their voice in the shaping of their environment and inform themselves of who and what shapes their lives and their surrounding environment.
