Youth Work Ireland Meath was originally established in 1989 and supports a network of 16 youth clubs and 4 Youth Café's across the county. We also support a network of community youth projects, and are developing a youth information service. Youth Work Ireland Meath is committed to a set of key values and principles, which underpins all of our work:-
Our 'Meet and Eat' youth cafe was opened in January 2008 and is a twice daily service that caters for up to 60 young people each day. The cafe provides young people with a safe, warm and welcoming place to go, whether to hang out during school lunch breaks, or to go to in the evening. There is also a study space which has been a great success during the run up to exam time.
We are committed to ensuring the provision of a quality youth service in Meath through recruiting, supporting and training volunteer leaders and staff; development of youth clubs and providing youth work practice and programmes. We are monitoring, researching and disseminating information about young people and working with statutory, voluntary and community groups to meet the changing needs of young people and through the development and implementation of policies committed to best practice, such as child protection, Garda vetting and volunteer development.
To offer young people in Co Meath, social, personal, and educational activities in a dependable and professional way, seen by them to be worthwhile and fun while being constructive for their future and the future of their communities
