young people in a class and a building shot

Special youth services are provided on the Committee’s behalf by four voluntary youth organisations – YMCA, Foroige, Ogra Chorcaí and National Youth Federation.

The City of Cork VEC provides a wide range of supports to facilitate the delivery of a variety of services to disadvantaged young people through partnerships with voluntary groups, voluntary youth organisations and other national service providers.

Their work is also supported and monitored by Vocational Education Committee staff and is overseen by a Vocational Education Committee sub-committee which is responsible for strategic planning and monitoring and which receives regular reports from and meets formally with each of the four organisations on an annual basis.

Certain other youth service projects within the Committee’s responsibility are funded by the Department of Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs through the Young Peoples Facilities and Services Fund and the Local Drugs Task Force.
