As part of the 50th anniversary of Clare Youth Service, the public in West Clare were recently invited to view behind the scenes at the Kilrush Youth Project and Kilrush Garda Youth Diversion Project recently.

The event showcased the work of the young people in areas as diverse as art projects, personal development programmes, handmade remote-control cars, road safety, self-care and first aid.

A packed night also saw the presentation of First Aid Certificates to local young people who had completed certified training and whose skills and knowledge are now available to their families and community in the area.

The Kilrush Youth Project and Kilrush Garda Youth Diversion Project work with young people aged between 12 and 18 years of age. Projects include road safety awareness, drugs and alcohol information talks, sports programmes and personal development programmes.
