Generation Pandemic Recovery Fund

The Irish Youth Foundation is launching a €500,000 Fund to support successful transitions for our most excluded children and young people under three key focus areas;

The Fund has three focus points for change:

  • Educational Attainment – Programmes that support positive transitions through school from primary to secondary school and/or completion of secondary cycle
  • Personal Development – Programmes that support happy, healthy transitions from childhood through to adulthood (social, physical and mental health resilience)
  • Skills & Employability – Programmes that support successful transitions for young people to economic independence

The Fund will support organisations working with children and young people in the Republic of Ireland aged between 6-24 years.
