A Celebration of Volunteering
‘Volunteers have been at the core of our charity since Sr. Joan founded LYS 40 years ago,’ said Catherine Kelly, Director, LYS.
‘As we celebrate our 40th this celebration is our way of saying thank you to the volunteers that have and still contribute to LYS,’ continued Ms. Kelly.
LYS supports over 20 Youth Clubs, 3 Youth Cafes, 3 Garda Youth Diversion Projects, 2 Youth & Family Intervention Programmes, 2 Comhairle na nÓg, 2 YouthBank programmes, YELL (Youth Emnpowerment Looks @ Limerick) and a Community Training Centre.
‘Without the support of volunteers many of the above youth clubs and projects would struggle to exit,’ added Ms. Kelly, ‘who thanked the thousands of volunteers who have contributed to LYS.
Evening will be preceded by the launch of the Ger McDonnell Memorial Cycle 2013.
Now in its 40th year, Limerick Youth Service remains committed to supporting and encouraging young people to be active participants in shaping their future.
