Gateway Youth Project based in St. Marys Hall is for all young people 10 – 18 years in Athlone.
The project is a partnership between Foróige and Athlone Community Taskforce and is in existence since 2009. Our aim is to empower young people to develop their own abilities and attributes, to think for themselves, to make things happen and to contribute to their community and society.
The Youth Project offers young people with different interests a safe and fun place to be with friends, learn new skills and of course have fun for example coding, filmmaking, music production, cookery, brick builder club, Health and Wellbeing Programme.
Programmes are planned and structured on the needs and interests of the young people. They are complementary to their formal, academic /vocational education and training. The Project is based in St Mary’s Hall, Northgate Street, Athlone, County Westmeath.
