St Michael's Parish Youth Project is an independent community-based youth service set up in 1986. We provide non formal education, individual and group work support, plus a range of indoor and outdoor activities for young people from Inchicore and surrounding areas. Our Mission is to support and assist young people to achieve their full potential .
Our area includes St. Michael’s Estate and Tyrone Place flats complexes, Emmet Crescent and the housing estates of Bulfin, Myra Close, Emmet Road and Turvey Avenue as well as the Oblates area of Inchicore.
From its inception the project has striven to include young people most at risk from Inchicore and surrounding areas. Many young people attending our project face difficulties in reaching their full potential for a number of reasons including socio -economic disadvantage ,poor educational attainment, family issues, poor mental health, unemployment, trauma, criminality and anti-social behaviour to name just a few.
The youth Service takes a community development approach to its work in order to better advocate for services and facilities for young people in Inchicore.
