BYC is a youth service based in the north east inner city of Dublin which has been working with young people in this community since 1918. BYC delivers targeted programmes to young people and has endeavoured to be at the forefront of best practice in youth work.
BYC works with children and young people that are exposed to the impacts of poverty, unemployment, drug and alcohol misuse and a range of other social problems to a greater extent than almost any other children in the country. BYC provides services to the 750 kids aged 7-10 and is at the forefront of providing services to 10-20 year olds along with other local organisations.
In its direct work with young people, there are three areas of priority for BYC:
- Universal services that are available to all members. They include drop in services for primary and secondary school kids in the afternoon and evening as well as a summer programme.
- Targeted youth programmes that are delivered by the youth work team to smaller groups to develop self-confidence, creativity, informal learning and relationships. These programmes include homework clubs, outdoor activities, sports and activities, drama, computer skills, photography, creative writing and youth leadership.
- Working with ‘harder to reach’ young people that involves working in small groups and one to one with young people who are at risk of entering into the justice system. This work involves building stronger relationships with their families and helping them to define a direction for their lives.
