YSI Young Social Innovators

Well done to the Abbey’s Young Social Innovator Transition Year team who participated in the YSI Speak Out in the Lyrath Conference Centre, Kilkenny today. Their project ‘Breaking Borders’ focuses on educating themselves and others on the experiences young people have as refugees and asylum seekers in Ireland. They also seek to spread awareness in the school community concerning Ireland’s current housing system for refugees and asylum seekers, Direct Provision. Their future plans include campaigning for the rights of refugees and hosting a guest speaker to meet with Transition Year and First Year CSPE groups. Congratulations on a great performance today!
