Kildare town’s impressive youth hub The Hive launched their first Strategic Plan last Thursday.  The Plan was developed following a consultation process with both locals and young people and sets out the main aims of the Hive for the period 2018 – 2021.

The main aim of the hive which underlies the Strategic Plan is to Create Opportunities for Young People in Kildare.  The plan has 4 main pillars  which are

Provide a positive social space for young people

Relevant activities and programmes

Collaboration between all stakeholders, and

Sustainability of the facility.

The youth hub is operating 3 years now with an increasing number of activities as outlined by Hive manager Lynn O’Connor. It was great to see so many of the young people who take part and volunteer in the HIVE’S activities so involved at the launch which is a great indication of their support and its success.

I look forward to working with them to assist in the roll out of the Strategic Plan.
