Dungarvan Community Youth Project is a community based youth project which operates in Dungarvan Town. The Project aims to work with young people who were previously unattached and/or at risk of anti-social behaviour. The main aim of Dungarvan C.Y.P. is to support young people to cope with the many issues they encounter in their everyday lives such as: family life, involvement in petty crime and vandalism, coping with school, exams and leaving school early, use of drugs and alcohol, sexuality and sexual activity, peer pressure and gang activity, and planning for the future. The Project endeavours to equip young people with the information, skills and self-awareness necessary for them to make decisions for themselves having taken account of the many consequences. The Project provides young people with access to a wide range of programmes and activities designed to develop their particular skills and interests through creativity, sport and recreation, education and development and issue based programmes. All of the programmes and activities undertaken with young people in Dungarvan Community Youth Project are delivered in partnership with adult volunteers from the local community.
