TWO young people from Carlow graduated from Foróige’s Leadership for Life programme recently at a ceremony in the National University of Ireland Galway (NUIG).
Alexandra Balfe Vicic and Clodagh Doyle were awarded with a foundation certificate in youth leadership and community action, which is accredited by NUIG. A total of 207 young people graduated from across the country having completed the programme.
“The Leadership for Life programme is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for 15- to18-year-olds to acquire accredited leadership skills,” said Foróige’s chief executive Seán Campbell.
“They gain aptitudes in critical thinking, problem solving, empathy, resilience, self-reflection and teamwork through experiential learning in a safe and supportive environment,” he added.
“Alexandra and Clodagh and all the young people that have graduated today should be extremely proud of committing to the programme and taking charge of their own leadership journey,” said Mr Campbell.
