Student Testimonials


"Youthreach Ballinrobe was a brilliant experience for me. Youthreach is a lot different to mainstream schools as the teachers work with you and get to know you which I found very helpful as the class sizes are a lot smaller which allows the teachers to help you one on one. Over the course of my two years in Youthreach I made friends for life as well as going on amazing trips and days out. During my first year of finishing Youthreach I attended a pre-nursing studies course in Athenry Vocational School. I successfully completed this course with 12 distinctions. I now plan to further my studies and have applied for a BA Honours Applied Social Care degree in Athlone IT. Without Youthreach I wouldn't be in such a fortunate place as I am now. I would strongly recommend anyone who doesn't enjoy or fit in in mainstream secondary schools to go to Youthreach". Noreena Hughes 2015

"I enjoyed the experience of Youthreach, where I took a course in QQI Level 4 Employment Skills with a specialism in Engineering. I found the teachers very helpful and obliging. I was on work experience in McHales Engineering in Ballinrobe and as a result of this, I am now employed there as a gear box assembler. The course really helped me get into this line of work and I really enjoy it. All the subjects that I studied helped my learning. I graduated with a Certificate of Merit and I gained a distinction in Engineering. I would recommend Youthreach to anyone who has left school and needs to get a qualification for work or for further studies". Philip Cawley 2015

"When I first started in Youthreach, I thought I was not going to fit in, but it only took me one day to settle in the centre. The most thing I liked about Youthreach was that everybody got on so well together. I chose to do the Hairdressing course because I have always had a keen interest in hairdressing. The teachers here are very helpful, so you are not afraid to ask for help. Part of this course requires you to do one day per week in a local hairdressing salon. I would highly recommend Youthreach to anybody that needs a hairdressing qualification".

"I did LCA in Youthreach Ballinrobe. I chose Youthreach, because the subjects are spread out throughout the year and they are done in different sessions. Youthreach is a much friendlier environment than mainstream school. The reason for this is because the classes are smaller and you get to know everyone individually. If you can't get on in school or you would prefer smaller classes, then Youthreach is the perfect place for you. The teachers in Youthreach help you more, if you are finding a subject too difficult. The students in Youthreach get on really well together because the classes are small. My overall experience of Youthreach has been an amazing journey, where I met new friends and I also got an education in the process". Thomas Cleary 2015
