Presentation of Certificates to Project ReFocus participants in Knocknaheeny/Hollyhill

 At a ceremony in the Council Chamber, City Hall, Cork on 14th October 2009, Certificates were presented to participants who successfully completed Project ReFocus in Knocknaheeny/Hollyhill by the Deputy Lord Mayor Cllr. Des Cahill.

12 participants (18-25 age group) completed the 14-week long programme which covered a range of activities designed to move closer to the workforce.

Chair of the City Work Group, Anthony Dinan, was loud in his praise for Project ReFocus: “I wish to congratulate everybody involved in this project.  It is one that has brought together so many agencies, shown the wonderful commitment of the participants and deserves to be supported by business and community alike.”

Jim O’Donovan, Director of Services, Community & Enterprise, Cork City Council: “The presentation of Certificates is a recognition of the effort and commitment of the young people involved. It is also an indication of the inter-agency and community involvement in working to ensure access to education, training and employment for our young people.” 

Project Refocus is an inter-agency and community based project supported by Cork City Council and the City Development Board.  The core strategy of Project Refocus is on an inter-agency three year training and support commitment for individuals identified through local employment and education task groups.
