Youth Work in Schools Team

Our mission is to enable young people to overcome the barriers to achieving their full potential

The Youth Work in Schools Team will work with a range of specialist partners, teachers and other school staff to add to existing learning activities where appropriate and to deliver additional opportunities for Senior Phase students.

The work of the Youth Work in Schools Team includes training and support for young people to develop skills that enable taking on responsibilities that will increase confidence and enhance abilities to communicate and work well with others.  Negotiation and critical thinking activities will increase participants capacity to be resilient, problem solve and to have their say.

Opportunities for young people at risk of a negative destination after leaving full time education will be part of our work with schools.  Life skills and skills for work will be offered to enable capacities necessary to successfully make the transition to adult life and achieve their full potential.
