Laois Foróige’s Regional Conference
Teenage Delegates for the Laois and Kildare Foróige Regional Conference in March
Almost 100 teenage delegates from 18 Foróige clubs across Laois and Kildare will be gathering at the Keadeen Hotel in Newbridge the first weekend of March
Each year the members gather to discuss topics relevant to them such as these from the past three years; “Teenage self-determination and the shift from child to young adult”, “Cyber bullying and the effects of over sexualised content” and “The importance of volunteerism in creating community”
This year the delegates will also be nominating and electing 2 representatives onto the national reference panel of Foróige where 100 young people across Ireland will help shape and determine the supports and services that Foróige will offer to the membership and communities it supports.
Foróige is the leading youth organisation in Ireland and has been working with young people since 1952. Our purpose is to enable young people to involve themselves consciously and actively in their development and in the development of society.
The Development Officer Alan Judge is keen to engage with any community or volunteer that would like to discuss being part of the existing clubs or showcase the opportunities available for the members and the volunteers alike by creating a new club in their area. If you would like to learn how your support will make a difference or what you can gain from the experience, please check out www.foroige.ie, Contact Alan on firstname.lastname@example.org or 0866384199
