Project Re-Focus

Project Re-Focus is a Youth Employment Programme which was developed through the Knocknaheeny RAPID Programme and has been extended to other parts of the City. The programme includes a 3 year commitment to the young people who participate in the programme to provide them with skills training, personal development and other necessary supports which will ultimately lead them into mainstream training and education or employment. The programme has been very successful to date with 120 young people who would be at risk of long-term unemployment participating in the course.

The programme is supported by a partnership of agencies from the public, private and community sectors. The initiative is funded principally by the Department of Social Protection, with financial support from Cork City Council, Urban Enterprises, the City of Cork VEC and Cork City Partnership.
