Youth Involvement

A group of young TY students from St Raphael’s College and St Brigid’s College got together as volunteers and decided with the help of Sustainable Energy West and Naomh Breandain Credit Union Ltd to promote sustainable living in Loughrea town and surrounding hinterlands.

The aim of this group is to work on sustainable projects that will have a long term impact on the lives of people living, working and visiting in the area. Each group will work on specific projects and each student will be rewarded for their involvement in voluntary work.
