Foróige youth workers are absolutely passionate about creating learning opportunities for young people. We’d like to congratulations our colleague Siobhán Hennessy, coordinator at Foróige’s Computer Clubhouse in Blanchardstown, who has been selected to receive an Adobe Creative Educator Award! The Award includes multiple Creative Cloud licenses from the Adobe Foundation. Young people attending the Clubhouse will have the chance to learn how to use Creative Cloud software: Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, After Effects and other Adobe programmes.

“I’m extremely proud to be chosen for this award. The donation will ensure that more young people in West Dublin will be able to learn how to become digital media makers, instead of just being consumers of media,” says Siobhán. 

Only 6 of these awards were granted internationally. The Adobe Foundation made the following comment when sharing the good news. 
"Your thoughtful application, your experience leading Adobe Youth Voices programs, and your commitment to continuing to support young people’s creative capacity though media making embodies what the award is all about. Thank you for your work, passion, and investment in young people. You are among the first organizations around the world to receive this donation, and it is truly an honor to award it to you!"
