The long-awaited opening of Game Changers Youth Cafe, a dedicated youth space for young people on the spectrum has arrived. Located on the Leitrim Road, the space is ready for action and just needs some adult support for these amazing members.
The Foróige NYP will act as a focal point for youth activity, consisting of a Youth Café, Youth Clubs, Training Rooms, Pool Tables, Computer Access and much more.
This is a space available for use by all young people in the area that are part of Foróige or wish to join.
Foróige Regional Youth Officer Alan Judge has been working with the Staff and volunteers of the Project to create a time and space for the teens of the community to participate in the youth café alongside their current groups and clubs.
Alan has said “The interest from the young people are there it’s the volunteers that we need to make this happen.”
Foróige are welcoming expressions of interest from anyone aged 18 or over who would be interested in volunteering an hour or two per week and becoming part of the Youth Café team.
Full training will be provided (details below) and all places are offered subject to completing the Garda Vetting process.
This is a unique opportunity for adults of Carrick-on-Shannon to be part of a new, exciting venture whereby young people can avail of a space they can call their own.
A fully certified training course in Leadership & Child Protection will take place once the team has been brought together.
If this is something you want to be part of please feel free to contact Alan at any stage.
