Basketball Ireland are delighted to launch a Youth Leadership program in partnership with Foróige. It will cater for 30 participants between 15 and 18 years old, with an application process taking place to select suitable candidates. This exciting program will be delivered by Foróige to develop the skills and qualities for good leadership, challenging participants to use these skills to improve society. The programme recognises the innate leadership capabilities and potential in young people and will offer them the opportunity to hone that potential in a fun and encouraging environment. It has been evaluated by NUI Galway, providing evidence that candidates gain benefits personally and, in their ability, to contribute to their community. 

The course will be delivered over 30 hours split between nine sessions, the majority of which will be held online with two visits to the National Basketball Arena in Tallaght required. Those interested in participating, can apply through the following link. Closing date for applications is the 4th of June.
