During the week I was at the Youth Convention for T.Y. and 5th year students in the north east inner city, organised by the Prevention and Education group of the North Inner City Drugs and Alcohol Task Force. 75 students attended from Rosmini Community School, Larkin Community College, O’Connell’s and Marino VEC. The facilitators came from the youth projects. Discussions, vox pop, quiz, looking at media were part of the 3 hour convention.
Next Tuesday it is the turn for the schools in the north west inner city and will be held in Blackhall, courtesy of the Law Society.
