Our mission is to offer young people from our community the inspiration, motivation, knowledge and skills to help them achieve their career potential.
Research shows that children as young as five years old form stereotypical views about the jobs people do based on gender, social background and ethnicity. Inspiring the Future Ireland aims to raise young people’s aspirations and instil in them the belief that they can achieve anything they put their minds to, irrespective of the barriers they face.
By meeting volunteers from the world of work, students are introduced to a variety of role models which can have a positive impact on their relationship to education and, as a result, on their future potential.
Inspiring the Future Ireland works with students, teachers, and volunteers across the Tallaght and Clondalkin areas by making connections, building relationships and improving outcomes by helping young people recognise and reach their potential.
Currently our project offers volunteer visits, career development workshops, work placements with leading employers, university access events and themed events.
