Description

To provide a comprehensive and quality range of programmes with the support of local volunteers to young people aged 10 – 18 years who maybe unattached and/or at risk in the Larchville, Lisduggan and Manor Saint John areas of Waterford City.

The purpose of the Project is to give the young people in the community a safe place to meet with friends/peers and develop positive relationships with new and existing peers in their community. We provide activities that will increase their self-esteem, self-confidence, encourage pro social behaviours and lead to better outcomes in the young people’s lives. We work with the Young people to meet their needs and interests. Young people are completely involved in all the group planning, delivery and evaluating of the group progress. This work is carried out through numerous interventions all planned in conjunction with the young people in the Project. Activities and programmes for the young people may include:
• Core group work
• Arts & crafts programmes
• Cooking programmes
• Sports and recreational activities keeping young people healthy and physically active
• Life skills programmes designed around the needs of the young people including encouraging young people to make positive decisions within their life
• Team work and team building activities
• Outdoor pursuits
• Small focussed based groups
• Summer programmes during no school contact (high risk)
• Mid term programmes
• One to one work around personal goals and interests, school concerns and family concerns
• CV prep and writing
• Volunteer groups and support
