Youth Work Ireland Meath

About Us

Youth Work Ireland Meath was established in 1989 as a response to the growing number of youth clubs in County Meath. Registered as a limited company in 1992 and affiliated to Youth Work Ireland, we are overseen and supported by a voluntary Board of Directors from local communities. The youth service is managed by our Regional Director, who is supported by one full time and two part time Youth Workers and Community Employment (CE) staff and an extremely valuable resource of volunteers from throughout the County.

With a network of youth clubs affiliated from across the county, we also have a network of community youth programmes. We are committed to ensuring the provision of a quality youth service in Meath through:

  • Recruiting, supporting and training volunteers, leaders and staff.
  • The development of Youth Clubs and Youth Cafés and in addition to improving Youth Work practise and programmes.
  • Monitoring, researching and disseminating information concerning young people and working closely with statutory, voluntary and community groups to meet the changing needs of young people.
  • The development and implementation of policies committed to best practice, e.g. Child Protection, Garda Vetting and Volunteer Development.

Youth Work Ireland Meath serves young people in County Meath, between the ages of 8 and 25, providing a range of social, sporting, artistic and educational activities and programmes. Our Strategic aims are to:

  1. Improve access to youth services for the young people of Meath

  3. Develop into an organisation lead by and run for young people
