The project, called Foroige Futures will provide services for established groups in the 10-12 and 13 to 18-year-old age bracket as well as specialist interest sessions.

As well as peer-led activities driven by the local young people, the clubs will offer career guidance, personal development programs, driver theory tests, and taster courses

It will also focus 15 to 19-year-olds, and help them identify goals and future QQI training.
