All about Kilkenny’s Youth Advocacy Service

Advocacy, in Kilkenny, offers mentoring, advocacy, guidance, information and counselling.

The Youth Advocacy Service was established to meet the specific guidance and training needs of young people aged 16-21 years who have left school with no qualifications. The Service provides confidential one-to-one support to young people which aims to encourage positive decision making and career path planning.

Advocacy can

  • Help build on a young person’s self-esteem and self-confidence
  • Inform your people of their choices and rights
  • Give young people a space where they can confidentially communicate their needs
  • Help young people progress to employment or further education and training

Supporting young people with finding a way forward, you can talk to Will Lennon, youth advocate, at Kilkenny Employment for Youth on Garden Row in Kilkenny City.
