A unique youth leadership programme that brings together young people from Cork and Belfast to learn new skills was launched at the headquarters of Gas Networks Ireland today, Tuesday, October 2, by boxing champion Christina Desmond.
Teenagers from Terence Macswiney College, Bishopstown Forioge Group and Cobh Community School will embark on the programme that will link them with young people from the Seymour Hill and Colin Glen areas of Belfast.
The programme tasks the participants with working on social action projects in a bid to improve their skillset through learning leadership techniques. As they do this, they also develop links between Cork and Belfast.
The event was launched by Irish boxing champion and European and World Championship competitor Christina Desmond.
