The Thurles Journey in Faith Youth Group would like to publicly acknowledge the funding received from the National Lottery, National Development Plan, Department of Children and Youth Affairs and Tipperary Education and Training Board.
This funding has allowed us to run our youth group for young people between eleven and nineteen years of age. We have provided a huge range of activities for these young people, and engaged in a number of projects and events. This has included music workshops, hiking, art and crafts, retreats, activity nights, arts and craft, guest speakers, trips, quizzes and team-building exercises amongst other activities. We have facilitated training for leaders, and purchased essential equipment. We’ve had the resources to provide refreshments to our young people at events. We’ve been involved in carol services and events for charity. It has also allowed us to run our Teen Music Project once again, and this will culminate in a concert shortly. We look forward to recreating the special event we had last year.
None of this would be possible without the financial support we receive from these agencies, and it ensures that all those who wish to participate, can participate.
