Congratulations to Leaving Cert student Mary Loughlin on being awarded a First Class Honours in Youth Leadership and Community Action. Mary completed a course designed to enable young people to develop vision, confidence and life skills to be effective leaders. The programme sets out to empower young people to make a positive difference to their community through practical actions and projects. One of the many projects Mary was involved in over the past few years was fundraising for the North West Hospice through the making and distributing of St. Brigid’s crosses.
This programme has been developed through a partnership between Foróige and the UNESCO Chair for Children, Youth and Civic Engagement at the Child and Family Research Centre, NUI Galway.
Mary will be attending the conferring ceremony in NUIG in November. Well done Mary on a tremendous achievement. We’re very proud of you.
