Core Youth Service on the road with Renault

Inchicore’s Core Youth Service have been handed the keys to a brand new 171 Renault Trafic 9-seater minibus by Renault Ireland in partnership with the Irish Youth Foundation, to help get their new outdoor programmes on the road, writes Trish Whelan

Previously known as St Michael’s, the Core Youth Service was set up in 1986 in response to poverty, a lack of recreational opportunities and substance misuse in the youth population of St Michael’s estate and the larger Inchicore area in Dublin.

Conor Dixon, Renault Ireland, with Thomas McCarthy, Core Youth Service, and Niall McLoughlin, Irish Youth Foundation are pictured above handing over the keys to a new Trafic 9-seater minibus. 

The project’s aim was to provide youth interventions, activities, developmental groups and supports, as well as ongoing broader recreational and developmental activities for the wider youth population.

The brand new Renault Trafic minibus will contribute significantly to a new programme which encourages young people to travel outside of the area and will provide them with diversionary activities which are not centre-based, and are high in energy and adrenaline. This project also enables staff at the Core Youth Service to develop relationships with young people away from distractions in the community, and promotes alternative lifestyles and fitness.
