na n’Og AGM
At the Wexford Comhairle na n’Og AGM young people from all over County Wexford gathered in solidarity with policy makers to consider needs, solutions and positive ways forward relating to real issues effecting their lives. Together with officials from Wexford County Council and FDYS, the WWETB Youth Officer, Maria Lindell met with young people and teams of youth workers to hear first-hand about the needs in the community. In the County Council Chambers, over one hundred young people from diverse backgrounds, schools and youth projects spoke passionately about their views of growing up in County Wexford. The young people will be issuing their reports in the coming weeks and it is hoped that their findings will be used in planning of activities and policies effecting their lives.
