The Shy Project is a community based youth project which was set up by Waterford Regional Youth Service in 1991. The Shy Project works with young people between the ages of 10 and 24 years in the Sacred Heart Parish, and covers St. John’s Park, Kilcohan Park, St Herblain Park and surrounding areas of the city. The SHY provides a safe and welcoming environment for young people to be themselves, develop new relationships and have fun.
While here young people have access to a wide range of affordable programmes and activities designed to develop their particular skills and interests. This work is done through creativity, sport and recreation, education and development and issue based programmes. All of the programmes and activities undertaken with young people in the Shy Project are delivered by staff members and volunteers. All adults working with young people in The SHY Project have been through the Garda Vetting process.
