Donegal Youth Service launched ‘Teen Talk’ in Letterkenny Headquarters. During the morning we were at informative presentations about the one to one youth work service. ‘Teen Talk’ is a confidential universal service suitable for all young people aged between 12 and 25 years who would like extra support with any issue they are experiencing with a professional youth worker.
The World 11 Music, Sport and Politics Group spent a few days in Gartan on residential as a final course activity. They swam, visited natural places and canoed on the lake. The residential finished with an active workshop in which they share a lot of personal experiences. It was a great time with a great group of young people.
Later on in June, our couch has been regularly warm thanks to visits from other EVS volunteers. We were glad to host Suzonn, from Belgium who is on her EVS in Galway, North West of Ireland. She is in a Circus Project, running some lessons for local youngsters. Suzonn came to Letterkenny to have a training at silk discipline so we had the pleasure to have her at home during two weeks. It was amazing to attend the Guiness Record attempt in Aura Centre. About 35 professional acrobatics performing at a time the same silk choreography. We learned a lot about Circus through her experience.
Also Havvah and Miriam, doing there EVS in the South of Ireland, stayed a short but fun stay in Letterkenny after a busy weekend around Northern Ireland. It was great to meet other EVS from Macedonia, Eslovenia and Canada whose came along with them and we were able to update each other about our EVS living.
