Congratulations to 6th year student Rachel Trimble on being chosen as a Local Champion for the Roscommon-Galway constituency by the National Youth Council of Ireland (NYCI), which represents organisations working with young people nationwide.
The campaign aims to ensure increased investment in young people and youth work locally and nationally.
Rachel has received training and support from NYCI to effectively convey the positive impact youth work has on her life and the lives of young people in the local area, as well as the importance of investing in youth work.
NYCI is calling for an increased investment in youth work in Budget 2024, to support the rising costs associated with delivering quality services locally and ensure equal access to youth work for all young people nationwide.
Rachel, along with other Local Champions, is hoping to engage with representatives including TDs Michael Fitzmaurice, Claire Kerrane and Denis Naughten, among others.
Well done Rachel on this outstanding achievement.
