Skills & Employability
A good job gives you status, focus and purpose and is fundamental to your physical and emotional health. In fact, it often defines who you are as a person and how you’re seen by others.
Unfortunately, young people from disadvantaged backgrounds often miss out on the skills that are
essential to finding a job, leaving them exposed to debt, depression and harmful addictions.
Working and receiving a living wage is fundamental to success. Over the next five years, we’re focused on increasing our support for programmes that support skills learning, internships, mentorships, training and pre-employment programmes to ensure all young people can access fulfilling employment.

How you can help
Our aim is to reach 45,000 children and young people who are living in disadvantaged circumstances across Ireland.
To do this, we need to support a wide range of youth projects as well those incredible youth workers who work tirelessly, and often voluntarily, to ensure children and young people have a future to look forward to.
But we can’t do it without you.
Whether you are a business or an individual you can help.
