Foróige, An Cosán, Erris Youth Service

An Cosán, Erris Youth Service, is a partnership service provided by Foróige and Mayo, Sligo, Leitrim Education Board. The service is a dynamic and flexible service that works to meet the ever changing needs of young people, in particular those young people most at risk of not meeting their fullest potential. The service empowers young people to reach their full potential through a range of programmes that build confidence, creativity, resilience, relationships, cultural respect, life skills and a sense of belonging, in partnership with young people and their community. The Erris Youth Service is funded by the Department of Children and Youth Affairs UBU- Your Place, Your Space targeted youth funding scheme, through Mayo, Sligo, Leitrim Education and Training Board (MSLETB). The project is a newly funded targeted project and has been in operation since October 2021 and works with young people aged between 10 and 24yrs. The aim of the service is to give young people an opportunity to overcome adversity and reach their full potential in a safe and supportive environment by providing a wide range of services primarily in Belmullet but also in the outreach areas of Eachléim and Cornboy/Rossport, such as programme-based activities, educational support, individual work, and school holiday initiatives.
