CMETB allocate over €55,000 in funding to local youth groups

July 24, 2020

Cavan and Monaghan Education and Training Board (CMETB) has allocated over €55,000 in grant aid funding to 73 youth groups across Cavan and Monaghan through the Local Youth Club Grant Scheme.

CMETB administers the Local Youth Club Grant Scheme on an annual basis on behalf of the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs. The scheme, which is co-funded by the proceeds of the National Lottery offers support to voluntary youth club/group activities for young people with priority given to clubs/groups catering for young people aged 10–21.

The allocation of these grants will provide vital support to the volunteer led youth groups in the Cavan and Monaghan region and will aid with the advancement and rollout of their local programme provision.

Councillor Colm Carthy, Chair of CMETB Youth Work Committee said: “We punch above our weight in these counties when it comes to youth programmes and activities and that is due, in no small part, to the structures put in place and managed by the Youth Work Committee. We are recognised as being one of the leading constituencies in the state for offering Youth Services and they continue to grow each year. I want to pay special tribute to the youth groups who are receiving this much-needed funding; thank you for everything you do. Not only do these volunteer-led committees help shape our young people, they help our communities become better places. The work that they take part in and carry out throughout the year helps our future generations – as the old saying goes, ‘we do not inherit this earth but borrow it from our children.”

Maureen McIntyre, Youth Officer CMETB said “Cavan and Monaghan Education and Training Board commend all of the youth service volunteers who provide valuable contributions to our local young people across Cavan and Monaghan.  Through our Youth Work statutory function, CMETB are delighted to support the valuable work and the administration of these grants to further support youth groups programmes and development across the region.”
