Please help us to continue our valuable programs and projects and positively impact the lives of vulnerable youth, women and communities – those whose voices aren’t often heard – to transform lives by learning, creating and celebrating culture together. Ireland has been an ideal place to run our pilot programs because it is an island with a legacy of trauma and cultural resilience. It also has one of the highest rates of teen suicide in Europe.
Our work seeks to positively impact this and other complex problems through strengths-based programs that take an upstream approach in terms of mental health. Our objective is to build community, identity and belonging among young people including those whose families have been affected by trauma, poverty and addiction. Our Young Cultural Leaders Program develops social emotional skills like empathy, courage and resilience, encourages youth to value learning and the process of change, what makes them unique, and to speak up for what is right and fair.
We are funded by people, people like you, and we couldn’t do this without your help.
Thank you – go raibh maith agat.
