Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween
 
October has been an extremely busy month for all of us at Youth Release. On October 10th we went the Dublin City University expo. We had great fun and met some awesome people including Mr Enda Kenny who stopped by for a chat. Unfortunately his people dragged him away before we had a chance to snap a photo op, but hey there is always next time. Thank you so much to everyone who came along and thanks to Fr Joe Jones who made it all happen and for inviting us to take part. 
     
                                


Thank you so much to everyone who came out to Diceys on October 16th for the annual Youth Release table quiz. We had a great night and raised essential funds for the programs running  at the youth center. Thanks for all your support and for coming out!

 
Meet Elias
Elias is 15 and is one of the adolescents who is starting his Vocational Training this month. Elias is an orphan, he lost both of his parents due to HIV/AIDS and has spent the last number of years working and living on the street. Thanks to the Vocational Training program he is now training to be a mechanic and receives shelter and food. After his training is completed Elias will never have to live or work on the street and can use his skill to better his future. Elias is just one of many, thanks to the Youth Release Ironman Team who are sponsoring 33 children through this program and also to all of our sponsors who are supporting these adolescents!
