Foróige’s new Reference Panel talk about their recent meet-up

foroigeadmin March 16, 2015

My first Reference Panel weekend was one of the best weekends of my life without a doubt. I must say I was quite nervous about the weekend but once I got to meet all the other young people my nerves completely disappeared. Our first evening started off by learning about how Foróige helps us. It was great hearing other people’s stories about how Foróige helped them. Next was for us to get into groups and talk about Foróige. I loved the group work and I felt as if I was making a difference when we had to say how we felt Foróige could help make a change in young people's lives.

Four young men who attend the Local Drugs Task Force Project in the Kerrigan-Tyrell Youth Centre in Mayfield, Cork had a fantastic opportunity to spray paint a van and stencil and graffiti their own personal messages onto it as part of a Trócaire sponsored initiative with the local Mayfield Arts Centre.

The ‘Splattervan Project’ is a custom designed mobile arts facility used to engage with groups in the community in a fun way and to promote participation and active citizenship with young people in their communities.
