Youth Work Ireland, Galway

Youth Work Ireland Galway is a local Charity working with local kids all over Galway City and County. Some Children our referred to Youth Work Ireland Galway by teachers, parents, social workers and other concerned adults but at the end of the day, the decision to participate is down to the individual young person.

We have projects based in Westside, Rahoon, Loughrea, D’Cube Ballinasloe, East Galway, Tuam and we support 15 Youth Clubs run by volunteers. We do this through supporting communities to set up and deliver youth programmes on a voluntary basis, and by developing services for young people. We aim to empower young people, boost their self-confidence, enhance their skills and give them the opportunity to engage in their communities in a positive way. If a young person or their family needs support or someone to talk to, they can contact any of our youth services.
