Young Social Innovators

This is our 2nd year in Glenamaddy Community School to enter into the Young Social Innovators. It is currently offered by Ms. O’Flanagan to Transition Year Students.

 

YSI’s Vision and Mission

Young Social Innovators (YSI) believes that young people are a powerful and largely untapped force for change in their local communities and in wider society. Promoting and leading the way in education for social innovation in Ireland, Young Social Innovators encourages, motivates and creates new opportunities for young people to actively participate in the world around them. It seeks to engage young people wherever they are – in schools, communities, youth organizations, in families, in or out of work – and prepare them to fully take part in civic action whether through volunteerism, community service, service-learning, citizenship education, social entrepreneurship and innovation.

Our students have certainly found it very fulfilling to be part of such a national project and they get to meet other schools at the Speak outs and the Annual Showcase.
