Youth Information

Youth Information Centres (YICs) provide a free, confidential information service to young people and those who work with them on a wide range of subjects including careers, education, employment matters, rights and entitlements, leisure, sport, travel and European opportunities.
Located around the country, they are a first point of contact for a young person seeking information on any subject of interest or concern. The information is provided in specially designed premises where the atmosphere is warm and informal. Many YICs offer additional services such as a low cost CV preparation service... internet access...European Youth Cards...hostelling cards.
Trained and friendly staff are always available to help find or interpret the information required. These staff work in close co-operation with other relevant voluntary and statutory agencies and will refer young people to them when further information or specialist help is required. If you want to...

New Online Youth Information Chat Service

Four leading Irish youth organisations have today formally launched a new unique online youth chat system called the Digital Youth Information Chat Service. The Youth Information Online chat service is the first of its kind in Ireland. CrosscareSpunOut, YMCA Ireland and Youth Work Ireland who had long-planned this service have expedited the launch to support young people during COVID-19 lockdown.

The Youth Information online chat service builds on a long-standing partnership of professional Youth Information providers in Ireland and relies on the development of commitment to joined up working on communications, safeguarding, data protection, and youth information practice. The service is staffed by professional Youth Information Workers. The service will be available to young people from 4pm to 8pm and is aimed at young people aged between 16 and 25. It is impartial, non-judgemental, reliable, and accurate.
