Axis Youth Space

 

Our new Tech Space for Louisburgh.

Opening Autumn 2019;

Axis Youth Space (Louisburgh) are expanded our existing skill set and adding an exciting new tech space to our current list of services in Louisburgh from autumn 2019. Our tech space will be the first of its kind in the area and lots of research, training and planning has already gone into this idea.

This tech space will also be equipped to deliver the ground breaking virtual reality "skills 2 succeed academy program" for young people trying to prepare for future employment. The Skills 2 Succeed Academy is developed by Accenture who are a global brand and one of Europes leading tech skills, training a employment opportunity companies and we are privileged to currently be receiving on-going training and support from them to bring this amazing program to Louisburgh later this year.

Did you know that almost half the jobs today's preschool children will be working in as adults hasn't been invented yet?

Our new tech club is going to be a Foróige space with a real difference as this one is all about learning, improving personal and life skills through tech while having fun. Building and coding apps, websites while making basic online games and basic robotics also form a big part of this new space. Other fun activities include making things like a keyboard with bananas and helicopters from paper cups. Learning through fun is our main goal.

How you can get involved;

We are looking for adult volunteers to come onboard, people who have an interest in the various types of activity described and when you get involved at this stage you'll have much more input in the formation of this exciting idea from early on. Garda vetting is required and training will be regular and on going but we'll easily assist you with all that.

Have you skills in things like car diagnostics? Street Art? Mindfulness? Design? Maybe your skills far exceed ours, we are always open to new ideas that can be passed on to young people that help them explore and progress in life.

Not available to volunteer with us, well there are lots of other ways you can you help;

Have you a spare room, space, shed, shop or office space that might suit or could be made suitable for this type of activity for up to 20 young people that you would let us use? A permanent hub for this idea would be our ultimate goal purely because of the amount of craft, computers and materials a space like this will have.

Our aim:

Our mission is to empower young people to expand their skill set and allow them to explore the real possibilities from their own ideas through tech, art and creativity is the way forward. If young people can dream it, our aim is to help them build it. Every young person is different and every young person has a dream and it's our hope to make them dreams a reality. Technology is a key factor in our children's future, so let's try and make it fun.
