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...
