Our work includes a wide ranging evening and weekend programme of youth based activities including football, boxing, gymnastics, performing arts, cheerleading, musical theatre, Irish dance, hip hop, breakdance, ballet and other leisure activities for over 2,000 young people per week aged between two and a half and eighteen years of age.

Over the course of the academic year over 380 pupils referred from almost forty high schools across gain an average of 4 qualification certificates each and referrals onto to higher education, apprenticeships or employment
