Réidh is an education, training, and employability service, developed by YMCA Dublin in response to the needs evident in the communities that we serve. It is for young people aged 16-30 who are unemployed, underemployed, have left school early, or are seeking guidance and skills growth to bridge the gap to their career path.

Réidh supports participants to develop their employability skills and build connections in the community so that they can be prepared for their future.

Réidh believes that education is not only about creating workers and employees, but aims to support the development of well-rounded young citizens who are equipped with the skills to live a healthy, happy and balanced life. It is centred on providing an enabling environment, promoting effective learning, and empowerment.

In January 2024, we are launching our new Réidh-careers programmes which supports career growth and skill acquisition through practical experience. Each cycle caters to a specific career, which are:

  1. Service and Hospitality
  2. Construction 
  3. Childcare and SNA
  4. Security

Courses are for people aged 16-30, 3 days a week.

During the 6 weeks you will:

✔ Engage with classes such as communications, computers, community and Ready 4 Work.

✔ Take part in supported group volunteer placements.

✔ Receive relevant career certifications eg. Safe Pass, manual handling, barista, HACCP, fire safety, waiter training, PSA, etc.

✔ Receive ESOL classes for non-native English speakers.

✔ Have support finding next steps with employment, further education, or volunteer placements.
