OutReach is a non-formal style of youth work without a building or a set activity. Our OutReach team is an active presence in the Dublin 2 & 8 areas, meeting young people in the spaces they already occupy and call “home”.

The aim of OutReach is to be consistently present within the local community, and build relationships with and provide support to young people who would traditionally be seen as “hard-to-reach”. The OutReach team is on the streets every Monday and Wednesday from 6 to 9pm.

We are committed to a relational method of OutReach youth work that values and uplifts young people, engages with them consistently, and connects them with relevant services. As with all our youth services, OutReach is young-person centred, based on a right to belong, and not exclusionary.

The OutReach youth service focuses on four approaches:
– Community-based engagement.
– Targeted approach.
– Creative and recreational.
– Partnership and collaboration.

OutReach youth work ensures we are reaching the whole community, especially those young people who are disengaged from community services, or have struggled during the pandemic.
