Donegal YMCA graduates make the grade 07.07.14

THE Donegal YMCA Support, Training and Enterprise Programme has congratulated the eight trainees who graduated from the course last Thursday.
The group is now urging people who would like to take part next term to get their applications in soon.
The programme is primarily aimed at early school leavers who are unemployed and between the ages of 17-25 years and have left school at least six months previously. Participants receive the equivalent of SOLAS training allowances and also receive a transport and meal allowance.

Outdoor pursuits ranged from cycling, gym, walking sessions. The group visited Belfast and also took part in a community graffiti wall at Derry's recent LegenDerry Maritime Festival.
"The aim of the programme is to support participants in gaining employment or accessing further education," Stewart explained.
