Community Training for Young People & Community Groups

Are you aged 16-25 years and want to do something about the lack of dedicated spaces for young people in your villages?

We would like to hear from young people aged 16-25 years who would be interested in fixing this problem in your own village or area of your town.  Young people who participate in this training programme, will be paired with community centre or development association committee members from the same area.  Please fill in and submit this short form if you are interested in participating: Young people’s project & training interest form 

What this training is aiming to do:

A bit more information about the project

The LEADER Programme funds community groups to develop facilities in county Wexford.  We are working to bring together young people and village committees from villages or areas of towns where there are no dedicated spaces for young people (outside of sports).  Villages selected will get to participate in free project management training.  Young people and committee members will work together on a plan to introduce young people’s spaces and will be supported to complete and submit funding applications to the LEADER programme in 2025.  

About the training programme

Participants will be guided through the process of identifying, planning and realising community projects.  This will include how to:

  • identify the need
  • engage the community
  • plan the project
  • implement
  • evaluate
  • sustain

The training will be delivered through a combination of face-to-face and online sessions.  Location will be confirmed once all young people & their corresponding village/community centre committees have been identified.
