Youth Services Programme
Cork ETB are delighted to announce the launch of The ‘We are Cork Youth Challenge’. This Challenge is open to schools or youth groups to register any young people between 13-18 years of age. Using the Flipgrid App (Download from App Store), pick 20 challenges from the list of 50, have fun and be creative and create a short video of you completing your challenge. This is a non-competitive challenge and we encourage all Teachers and Youthworkers to register your class or group.
The Challenge aims to encourage young people to participate to the best of their ability and engage positively with the challenges set for them. Have fun and be as creative as possible, while also taking the opportunity to develop new and exciting skills.
