Twenty-four young people from Donegal have graduated from Foróige’s Leadership for Life Programme. The National University of Ireland Galway (NUIG) awarded them with a Foundation Certificate in Youth Leadership and Community Action, Saturday October 15th.
270 graduated from the North and South of Ireland on Saturday having completed three modules in Leadership. The programme develops the leadership capabilities and potential of young people and gives them an opportunity to harness their skills and attributes to contribute to their society in a fun and encouraging environment.
Sean Campbell, CEO of Foróige said “The Leadership for Life Programme enables young people acquire key life and employability skills such as communications, critical thinking, problem solving, empathy, resilience, self-reflection and teamwork. These are skills that empower young people and ones that are not acquired easily in schools.
“Those that have graduated today should be extremely proud, not only for committing themselves to the programme but for taking their first steps in becoming the leaders of tomorrow,” Sean finished.
