Description:

Foróige Clubs are a safe place for young people to hang out, meet new friends and have a voice. What makes a Foróige Club different to other youth clubs is that it is run by the young people themselves. This allows them to believe in themselves, make decisions and practice leadership. The members of the Club elect a committee which includes a Chairperson, Secretary, Public Relations Officer and Treasurer. This gives them a chance to experience democracy first hand. The committee then works with the members and is supported by the adult club leaders to control and manage the club. This ensures that members are participating in activities they really want to do and will therefore get the most out of. Club members are 12 to 18 year olds from the local area. Certain clubs are targeted at younger members aged 12 to 14 years or older members aged 15 years to 18 years. Universal Service.
