Our Senior Youth Group (SYS) is a chance for young people to come together in a safe environment. They will learn various life skills as cooking and baking healthy meals and focusing on the importance of physical activity for mental health. It’s a chance for young people to socialise with friends and those outside their schools. Over the year we will be completing different workshops and programmes run by Aoife Lee for 4 weeks where we will cover modules such as better learning to manage your emotions and reacting to situations. Empowerment and self belief. Managing your inner critical voice and building self compassion.

The aim of our Music Club is to introduce music into the lives of the young people in our community. Our aim is to help children to express themselves and build their self confidence in an enjoyable musical environment. Although the focus of classes is on learning music we also want participants to meet new friends, develop a positive peer group and to have fun.
The SYS groups took in a few activities recently including a walk around Bray beach and up to Bray Head, a trip to Jump Zone in Sandyford and having a competition cooking up lasanga and baking cookies.
