Foróige's Big Brother Big Sister youth mentoring programme and Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship programme have been awarded a grant from the Tony Ryan Trust through the Community Foundation for Ireland . The purpose of the grant is to support children and young people in Tipperary to reach their full potential.
The ‘Tony Ryan Fund for Tipperary’ was established by the Tony Ryan Trust to give financial support to evidence based initiatives which support children and young people to reach their full potential. The core focus of the funding is to improve the life experience of children and young people living in the county. The Big Brother Big Sister and Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship programmes will be implemented by Foróige, Ireland's leading youth organisation through schools and community settings over the next 12 months.
