Clare Youth Service Digital Youth Information Access Project
Clare Youth Service have launched their Digital Youth Information Access Project in 14 locations across the county A first for any youth service in the country, the project has resulted in the installation of remotely enabled digital signage screens featuring real-time, relevant and reliable information on educational, health and well-being and other matters of interest to local young people.
Youth Work Manager with Clare Youth Service, Jean O’Keeffe says that the new technology fulfils a number of important functions, “We are delighted to be in a position to develop this innovative project in partnership with the schools, training centres and community hubs. It has been particularly valuable in addressing some of the challenges arising from COVID and in ensuring that young people in more rural areas are able to access relevant information’.
The information will be tailored to suit the needs and interests of the Young People in the various venues and will be updated on a regular basis. They will also have a positive environmental impact in reducing the use of paper and eliminating the need for travel in updating traditional noticeboards.
Clare Youth Services acknowledged the assistance provided by the Capital Grant from the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth through Limerick and Clare Education and Training Board.
