New Belturbet Foróige Youth Club

New Belturbet Foróige Youth Club

Breffni Integrated is working with Belturbet Community Development Association and Foróige to try and start a Foróige Club Youth Club in Belturbet.  There are huge benefits for young people and for the town in setting up a new club.  Breffni Integrated will be holding an initial meeting in Belturbet on Wednesday 8th June from 8pm-9pm in the Town Hall for new leaders

We will be looking for people who are willing to train with a Foróige Development worker to be leaders of the club.  Training is provided free of charge and becoming a leader can also help leaders gain new skills and work experience.
