Garda Youth Diversion Projects
Garda Youth Diversion Projects serve young people who are at risk of getting into trouble with the law. The projects are designed to help young people develop their sense of community and their social skills through different activities. Young People are offered opportunities in education, employment training, sport, art and music.
Approximately 2000 young people access the 100 Garda Youth Diversion Projects annually. The projects promote good relations between An Garda Siochana and the local community and more importantly help young people to redefine themselves and their life goals in a positive way that directs them away from anti-social behaviour and towards positive life choices.
Working with over 2,000 at-risk young people, help us continue this work
