Helping children and young people to participate in their local communities

The Community and Volunteer Led Initiative Sub Committee are working together

  • To map volunteer led youth clubs/groups in Kerry
  • To identify and address existing gaps in provision.

Through our work we hope to improve the availability of places to go and things to do for children and young people in Kerry and to help young people participate more fully in their communities. We hope this will impact positively on the development of our young people. It will help build social skills, strengthen friendships and health as well as increase enjoyment and encourage more active lifestyles.
