Youthreach everyday.....
"Cavan YR is great, so friendly and fun."
"Class Craic"
Many activities take place at Cavan Youthreach outside of the normal classroom setting. These activities are part of a holistic approach to the provision of education and include sporting, artistic, musical, cultural, social and leisure activities.

As well as helping young people realise meaningful and worthwhile leisure pursuits, these activities help learners to discover the value of teamwork, co-operation and participation. They also provide a vehicle through which initiative and leadership skills can be cultivated. Consequently all learners are actively encouraged to participate in the wide range of activities on offer.

"Best teachers I've ever had, especially the IT teacher Aidan'

Community Involvement
How we give back to the community
