Foróige is a leading National Youth Organisation concerned with Youth Development.
Currently there are 19 Foróige Clubs (12-18yrs) in the Westmeath area. Cubs meet for 1-2 hrs per week in local community centres during the school term. The young people elect a committee made up of their peers to run the club with the help and support of adult volunteers.
Clubs get involved in a variety of activities such as sports, drama, music, dancing and community projects. There is also the opportunity to get involved in interclub events such as disco’s, talent shows, soccer tournaments, quizes and National events such as the Foróige Youth Expo, Foróige got talent, The Albert Schweitzer Leadership for life programme, The Hype Youth Festival and Band on the Strand.
In order for a club to establish, a group of dedicated adult volunteers need to be willing to give up their time. All training is provided. If you are interested in establishing a Foróige Club in Delvin, please contact Breda @0869672921 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
