Foundation Certificate in Youth Leadership and Community Action
The Foundation Certificate is run in association with Foróige and the Adult and Continuing Education Office in NUI Galway. Foróige is Ireland’s largest national youth development organisation and the youth work partner of the UNESCO Chair programme.
The course is designed to equip youth with the required skills and confidence to take on positive leadership roles today and in the future. It is a year-long programme, delivered off campus by youth workers in Foróige clubs, projects and schools. It comprises three modules, youth leadership, leadership and community action and project work.
