Donegal Youth Service has launched a new youth club manual for volunteers across the county.
The 2022 manual was unveiled at the recent AGM and Volunteer Forum. This manual contains an essential guide for our youth clubs across the county as it ensures that all necessary information is contained in one clearly laid out manual.
Donegal Youth Service works with 29 youth clubs across County Donegal; supported by more than 300 adult volunteers and more than 11,400 young people engaged each year.
A spokesperson said: “We at DYS are always grateful to the group of volunteers who run their own youth clubs, meeting the needs of their own young people with the support of the ASPIRE Donegal project.
“We want all children and young people to be safe, secure and thriving and we are doing our best to make that happen.”
Charlene Logue, Youth Outreach Manager says: “We are always looking for new or returning volunteers to help support local youth clubs and services. There is a strong induction and training program offered to volunteers and all training is provided free of charge, as is our Garda Vetting application process.
Donegal Youth Service is constantly seeking additional funds to add to its program of activities and events offered at local youth clubs. The group works to ensure that youth work and rural youth work in particular are properly valued, funded and mainstreamed by the Department for Children, Equality, Disability, Inclusion and Youth (DCEDIY). All programs and activities are offered free of charge to young people. (Youth clubs may charge a registration/membership fee to cover running costs/insurance/rent etc.).
