Support for the Young is Key to Recovery
Orlaith McBride, President of The National Youth Council of Ireland, had a commentary piece published today, which argued that the key to recovery is to support young people, so that they in turn can become the leaders of tomorrow.
Excerpt: "In other areas young people have also borne the brunt of cutbacks. Youth work organisations around the country that support young people in our communities have been forced to scale back services, due to a range of cuts from various sources. Many of these projects work with the most disadvantaged, such as early schoolleavers and are finding it hard to cope, as demand has increased due to the recession, along with the fear of further cuts coming down the tracks, that will make it impossible to continue."
