Gluais youth leadership programme changed the lives of many students

By Maurice Garvey

STUDENTS from Ballyfermot, Clondalkin and Lucan recently graduated from a Gluais youth leadership programme.

The 2016 Gluais graduation ceremony took place at Kylemore College, Ballyfermot. Gluais, a voluntary organisation, works with Transition Year students, teaching youth leadership programmes.

Ten students are selected from each school and brought on a five-day training course, where they engage in a variety of exercises and return to become part of their school’s Gluais team.

Throughout the year they organise events for First Year students, and help them settle in and make friends.

Robert Dillon, PRO Gluais said: “Many students mention how Gluais has changed their life and many of the voluntary leaders who train the students are ex-students themselves – myself included. It is an excellent programme.”

Schools who took part in the programme include Lucan Community College, St Joseph’s College, Kylemore Community College, Collinstown Park Community College, CBS Lucan and St Kevin’s Community College.
