Summer at the Y

Get ready for an exciting Summer at the Y 2o24!

Summer at the Y offers activities, outings, and community engagement for young people across our community.

YMCA Dublin Youth Spaces includes a variety of programmes: YouthWork, PlusOne Mentoring, Alternative Suspension, Réidh, and more. This summer, we’re continuing our collaborative work with a combined Summer Project, open to any young person who has participated in our services throughout the year.

Our new timetable, coming soon, will provide all the details for 2024, including information about our launch event for sign-ups.

Spaces are limited, with priority given to those who have been with us throughout the year. We look forward to seeing you this summer!
