The FYRC approach is very much underpinned by the values of youth work. It is young person centred, respects all young people, keeps with the equality and inclusion ethos and empowers young people to become their best selves. We deliver a variety of programmes based on young people’s needs and interests through non-formal educational approaches. Supporting the personal and social development of young people from the Finglas community to add value to their lives is essential within our work. We also focus on developing the skills and competences to enable young people to become more effective in their decisions and relationships, which helps to build confidence, provides role models, give new experiences and give young people a sense of belonging within their own community.
