Katie’s on hand to open project

Bray People - - Opening Of Bray Youth Project -

THE LONG-AWAITED of­fi­cial open­ing of the Bray Youth Project ad­ja­cent to the Com­mu­nity Cen­tre took place last week­end with a burst of hip hop, drama and more.

Box­ing cham­pion Katie Tay­lor cut the rib­bon and said a few words in praise of the project to the as­sem­bled staff, young peo­ple and pub­lic rep­re­sen­ta­tives as well as VEC rep­re­sen­ta­tives.

There was a great crowd present on the day, in­clud­ing a huge amount of for­mer mem­bers of the youth project.

It was a proud day for cen­tre co­or­di­na­tor Yvonne Mur­ray, who over­sees all the ac­tiv­i­ties avail­able there. A DVD about the cen­tre was shown to the au­di­ence.

Bray Youth Project is open ev­ery day and some evenings for var­i­ous clubs as well as gen­eral drop-in times. There are plenty of ac­tiv­i­ties and clubs on of­fer as well as ed­u­ca­tion on life­style and com­put­ers.

Their neigh­bours in the com­mu­nity cen­tre hor­ti­cul­tural course did the gar­den for the project as part of the LEAP project.

LEAP stands for lo­cal ed­u­ca­tion for adult pro­gres­sion and course co-or­di­na­tors say it has been a great suc­cess.

The LEAP project is man­aged by Bray Adult Ed­u­ca­tion Con­sor­tium, a lo­cal group of com­mu­nity, vol­un­tary and statu­tory or­ga­ni­za­tions led by Bray Part­ner­ship.

The project iden­ti­fies train­ing and ed­u­ca­tion needs of Trav­eller men and re­sponds us­ing in­no­va­tive de­vel­op­ment pro­grammes to en­sure pro­gres­sion with re­gard to per­sonal, so­cial and eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment.
