Inspiring the Future Ireland

Following on from the success of Inspiring the Future in the UK, South Dublin County Partnership is piloting the Inspiring the Future Ireland in South County Dublin.

South Dublin County Partnership is a not-for-profit registered charity keen to work with like-minded individuals and companies to inspire young people to reach their potential. Inspiring the Future Ireland aims to be a free and easy way for thousands of schools and volunteers from the world of work to connect. The project is based on a best-practice model first established in the UK by our charity.

Launched on 21 September 2017, Inspiring the Future Ireland have begun connecting schools with volunteers from the world of work.
