Irish Examiner - County - - News -

Foróige is re­cruit­ing adult vol­un­teers to give an hour of their time, ev­ery week, for a new TechS­pace Pro­gramme in Fer­moy.

The pro­gramme helps young peo­ple to har­ness an in­ter­est in all things tech and be­come dig­i­tal cre­ators through free ac­cess to hard­ware, soft­ware, trained ed­u­ca­tors and cre­ative men­tors.

Emma Browne, club de­vel­op­ment worker with Foróige, said: “TechS­pace is not about how much you al­ready know about us­ing tech­nol­ogy, rather it is about in­spir­ing young peo­ple to tap into their cre­ativ­ity and in­ter­ests and be­come in­ven­tors with the tech­nol­ogy that is around them.

“We are look­ing for vol­un­teers to fa­cil­i­tate ac­tiv­i­ties with the mem­bers and sup­port them to do the projects they want to do.”

She said the op­por­tu­nity would be of par­tic­u­lar in­ter­est to in­di­vid­u­als from sci­ence, com­puter and tech­nol­ogy back­grounds, how­ever, all ap­pli­ca­tions are wel­come. Vol­un­teers will re­ceive in­duc­tion train­ing.
