The project runs many activites, an example is our Homework club, which caters for children aged 10-13 years of age. A snack is provided for each participant and activities include games and arts & crafts as well as homework support.

We would like to congratulate ‘The Tyone Crew’ who participated along with 21 other groups, in the Foróige Citizenship Awards in Cork. They received a Certificate of Achievement and a special Merit Award for their project. This is a volunteer led group held in Tyone Community Centre once a week for the young people aged 10-16 living in this area. We would like to thank Tracey Thompson (N. Tipp Town Council) and Regine Stewart (NTCS) for their participation and assistance with this group. New members and volunteers are most welcome.

This Christmas we are busy planning programmes and activities for 2012, including soccer, arts & crafts, dance, drama, drop-in groups, Hotspot multimedia training and much more. If you are a young person or potential volunteer with a particular interest or skill and would like to be part of Nenagh Youth Development Project, please let us know.

Foróige clubs across the county and Foróige nationally has been going from strength to strength. The clubs have been contributing to their communities with citizenship project, designed and carried out by young people themselves. Foróige has 60 years of enabling young people to learn more, do more and be more. The fantastic volunteers across the county enable young people to run their own clubs learning new skills and contributing to their communities.

Ireland’s Top Teens on TV3 showcased the abilities of young people to contribute to society, have a look on TV3’s player to be inspired by young people.
