Dungarvan Comminity Youth Project


Dungarvan Community Youth Project is a project of Waterford and South Tipperary Community Youth Service which works with young people aged 10-21 from Dungarvan town and its surrounding areas. The project was established in 1989 and is funded through the Department of Children and Youth Affairs.

The project aims to meet the needs of the young people involved through educational, developmental and activity based programmes. The young people are supported to identify their own needs and to develop and participate in appropriate responses. The work of the project is supported by a one full time worker and a team of local volunteers.

Recent Events:

During the month of December a number of young people from the project organised and participated in our second annual Christmas Trolley Dash in association with St. Vincent de Paul. Over four nights the young people took to the local estates with their festively decorated trolleys, to collect non-perishable food items from each household. The response we received we overwhelming as we managed to fill both trolleys every night! The young people dressed as Christmas Characters such as Santa Claus himself, Mrs Clause, Santa’s Elves and giant presents and caused great excitement as the called to the doors in the community for donations. All the food collected was distributed locally to those in need.

We would like to thank the residents of Childers Estate, Congress Villas, Lismore Avenue, Byrneville, Cathal Brugha Place, Silversprings, Western Bay, Murphy Place, Kyne Park and McCarthy Ville for their generous donations to our trolleys and to everyone who dropped items directly to the Dungarvan Youth Centre.

Recent Events:

Five members of the Dungarvan Community Youth Project attended the Co. Waterford Comhairle na nOg AGM on October 11th 2013. The young people took part in workshops during the day covering topics such as body image and social inclusion and sexuality.
