Youth Project

Mission Statement:

To support young people to be the best they can be by creating a place of welcome, understanding and encouragement. We aim to enhance the lives of young people by meeting their needs.


A centre where young people are respected, heard, valued and supported in reaching their full potential.

Who we are?

Kilmore West Youth Project CLG welcomes all young people from the Dublin 5 and Dublin 9 areas. We provide programmes and activities to those aged 10-24 years based on their needs and interests. KWYP provides a range of opportunities for young people to participate in. These services include drop-ins, educational and issue-based programmes, one-to-one support, residentials, summer programmes and the KEEP Garda Youth Diversion Programme. The youth service is managed by a voluntary board of management.

Who can access the project?

The Kilmore West Youth Project works with all Young People in the Kilmore area aged 10-21, to provide a safe place where Young People can be supported to reach their full potential.

Our core values:


Incidents are seen as a positive opportunity to intervene with an individual/group's development.

Young Leaders Committee

The Young Leaders Committee was setup in August of 2018 to assist the mainstream and justice team in organising and planning for events. Their accomplishments involved assisting the project and taking on essential roles for our community day & website launch. Their commitment and support to the project was awe-inspiring. Meeting up once a week to discuss in a professional format, the Young Leaders Committee strived each and every week to ensure the young people of Kilmore West are getting the best experience possible from each and every event they organise. The committee consisted of five members and eventually expanded to seven. They also suported staff in presenting a scare during Halloween at the Hellfire club and assisted staff in providing a community breakfast on Christmas eve for young people entering the project.
