The Quad Youth Centre, Roscommon
The Quad Youth Centre is a Foróige Youth and Family Support Project in Roscommon Town which engages young people in a wide range of education, recreational and specialised programs according to the needs of the young people. The centre is also used by a wide range of other community groups and services such as Volunteer lead groups, the Irish Wheel Chair Association, Family Support, Homework club, Dance classes, Yoga, Training courses and much more.
The Soccer Team (18 young people. boys and girls 14 – 16 years from Roscommon Town) decided as a community project to make the centre more homely and inviting for everyone. The team rallied their troops of friends and families for a community painting party and with bright, bold Dulux shades, managed to transform the Centre’s dull and dreary Game Room, Hall and Kitchen to a brighter, warmer and more inviting space. The guys from the centre certainly look pleased with the results!
