launched in 2018 as a programme to empower 14-24 year olds who are most marginalised in Fermanagh, Tyrone and Donegal.
The programme was awarded almost €4 million of EU Peace IV
funding under the Children and Young People’s strand by the Special EU Programmes Body
. With this funding, South West College, Donegal Youth Service
and TIDES Training and Mediation
pooled their resources and specialist knowledge to design and create a programme that has seen 635 young people completing so far.
Megan, aged 22, from Enniskillen, had a difficult journey in life, but thanks to the Youthscape programme at South West College (SWC), she positively turned her life around and has achieved amazing things.
