A new programme that will support young people with disabilities to access education and training opportunities and/or enter employment has been launched by Limerick Youth Service (LYS).
The Ability Programme will also support young people (15-24yrs) with disabilities to develop personally, economically and socially while encouraging them to get involved with community life.
Young people with disabilities such as a mental health condition, Autistic Spectrum Disorder, a hidden and/or learning disability can access the Ability Programme.
The young person will be supported by a Youth Mentor to develop the confidence and skills required to participate/transition through education and employment.
Young people, parents/guardians, employers and other interested parties who would like to know more about the Ability Programme are invited to contact LYS.
The Ability Programme is open to young people who live in the Limerick City Metropolitan Area or Surrounds and is located at LYS’ Community Training Centre, Lr. Glentworth St, Limerick.
LYS’ Ability Programme is co-financed by the Irish Government and the European Social Fund as part of the ESF Programme for Employability, Inclusion and Learning 2014-2020.
A member of Youth Work Ireland, LYS remains committed to connecting with young people and supporting them to reach their full potential.
