Information for Parents and Carers
We find that applicants to Youth Train are at their own crossroads. They have not completed the Leaving cert in the formal school system. The reasons why are different for each learner. In Youth Train there are learners who struggled with concentration, anxiety and large class sizes, who felt bullied or may have had an illness or condition that prevented their full participation in school. Struggling to work through these issues may have resulted in them getting into trouble. Youth Train works with young people who have struggled with formal learning, builds confidence and hope through coursework and positive contact.
