Foróige has become one of the fundamental stepping stones for young people as they navigate from their teenage years to adulthood. This is made possible by communities embracing their young people and providing outlets for them to socialise and develop in a safe and caring environment. Clubs led by a team of volunteers, usually meet for 60 – 90 minutes weekly. There are different types of Foróige clubs to cater for young people of varying ages (10 – 18 years) and interests.

For communities exploring the possibility of a Foróige Club there are three main ingredients needed to make this happen;

  1. adult volunteers,
  2. young people and
  3. a place to meet.

If you are interested in finding out more please contact Rosie O’Brien, Foróige Regional Youth Officer on 086 299 7677 or email rosie.obrien@foroige.

Best wishes
