Clare Youth Service hosts college workshops


Clare Youth Service Youth Information Office will run two workshops on Leaving Home and Going to College in Ennis & Ennistymon.

Going to college is both an exciting and daunting time. Being prepared can make a huge difference to adjusting and settling in.  Finding the right place to live, looking after yourself physically, mentally and properly managing your finances will make all the differences to experiencing college success.

Each workshop will look at budgeting tips, staying physically, mentally & sexually healthy, accommodation and being aware of the services available to you.  It’s very important to realise that if things become unstuck in any way, there are lots of people/services there to help.

Speakers will include Money Advice and Budgeting, GOSHH (Gender Orientation Sexual Health HIV) & Youth Information Officer (Clare Youth Service)

The Workshops take place at the following Locations:

Ennis The Junction 24th August 1pm – 4.30pm

Ennistymon, North West Clare Family Resource Centre, 25th August 1pm – 4.30pm

Cost: €5 (Light Lunch included)

Places are limited, to book your place please contact Rachel Dunne Lambe, Youth Information Officer on 085 8726293 or email
