Youth Work Ireland Tipperary

About Us

The core purpose of our organisation is the social, personal and educational development of young people enabling them to take greater control over their lives by giving them the opportunities to make choices and decisions and to exercise responsibility. Since its inception Youth Work Ireland Tipperary (formely TRYS) has grown from virtually total dependence on volunteers to its current position employing full time staff in each area plus Fas Workers.

Currently Youth Work Ireland Tipperary has projects for disadvantaged young people in Tipperary Town, Thurles, Templemore and Cashel, as well as our outreach team meeting the youth work needs of young people and rural communities.

We also have a comprehensive youth information service in both Tipperary town and Thurles with additional outreach points in Cashel and Templemore and for schools & Community Groups on request.

Youth Work Ireland Tipperary provides vital training & supports to youth clubs through the Rural Outreach Team which works with volunteers in the setup of youth clubs and other youth initiatives
