Our Board of Management

CABRA for Youth is a community based independent youth service founded in 2008 working directly with young people aged 10-24 years living in the greater Cabra area.

We offer young people in Cabra a fun, safe and supportive environment within which they can voluntarily engage in programmes and activities based on their needs and interests.

Our priority at Cabra for Youth is to promote and encourage the active participation of young people from the Greater Cabra Area who are deemed to be at risk, vulnerable, and/or marginalised within our community.

Cabra for Youth Clg operates primarily from Parkside Sports & Community Centre, Ratoath Road. Cabra For Youth is additionally operating from the newly opened youth space in St Bernards on Fassaugh Avenue behind the Londis. Further to onsite activities and programmes the project staff carry out regular outreach within the catchment area, whilst also providing offsite activities such as kayaking, biking, environmental projects and street art projects at various locations in our community.

Cabra For Youth Clg is directly funded by the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth through the City of Dublin Youth Service Board (CDYSB) and the Department of Justice through Irish Youth Justice Service (IYJS), hosting a mainstream Youth Service and Youth Diversion Project respectively.
