Pobail le Chéile supports youth work. This is defined as non-formal educational work with young people. The World Health Organisation defines ‘Youth’ as between 12 and 25 years of age.
We have a CoderDojo – a weekly youth space for learning and developing coding skills that includes undertaking special projects as well as the weekly 2 hour developer sessions. The Dojo welcomes young people under 12 if they have a real interest in upgrading their coding skills.
Currently the Dojo meets every Wednesday 5-7pm although that might change in autumn 2019.
Youth Drop-in and YoutHouse/Teach na nÓg @ Garradh Cholmcille
We have a special dedicate space for youth activity – Garradh Cholmcille the small community centre just past the Fire Station. This centre is open Wednesday to Friday 3-6pm during the summer and provides a drop-in space, kitchen area for making snacks and a venue for youth activities.
Retro-Gaming- this takes place Wednesdays 4-5pm.
Trips, outings, special projects and in-school /out-of-school activities. We work closely with the staff and library in the local community school to offer a Coder Dojo during school lunch-times as well as special history, environmental and publishing projects as well as the now famous Staying Power project that introduces 3rd Year students to the possibilities and options in the world of work.
We are always keen to listen to ideas of young people themselves and to try and incorporate these into the work of the project.
