Our Ethos

Youth Work Ireland Galway is committed to its voluntary ethos and is led by the principle and practice of community development. Community volunteers are trained and supported ro run services. local communities participate in decision-making processes about local services and young people participate in decision-making processes about services provided for them.

The Agency/ Organisation

Youth Work Ireland Galway is a voluntary organisation that works with young people in Galway City and the county and has done so since the 1970’s. We do this through supporting communities to set up and deliver youth programmes on a voluntary basis, and by developing services for young people implemented by paid staff.

We work in partnership with a number of community groups and statutory bodies. We employ 36 staff who with the support of over 300 adult volunteers deliver; a comprehensive and diverse range of services to young people throughout the county of Galway.
