The Youthreach Programme

Youthreach is the principal national response in Ireland to the difficulties faced by young people who have left school early.  It is an education  and training programme targeting in particular those between 16 and 20 years of age who have left the mainstream school system with poor qualifications or none.
The Operation Youthreach is co-funded by the Irish Government, the European Social Fund and the Youth Employment Initiative as part of the ESF Programme for Employability Inclusion and Learning 2014-2020.
