FIVE young people from Tallaght have attended an International Foróige youth leadership conference in Maynooth

The five, Kian Wilson, Ben Byrne, Dannielle Mahoney, Emma Byrne and Conan Gavin., joined 250 teenagers from India, the USA and all over Ireland for the Leadership for Life Conference.

 The conference, which was launched on the grounds of NUI Maynooth, brings together teenagers, aged 15-18, to learn how to become leaders in their own lives.

During the week-long conference they learn crucial life skills such as empathy, decision making, communication skills, critical thinking and teamwork.

Seán Campbell, CEO of Foróige, said: “The Leadership for Life programme enables young people to develop the skills, inspiration, vision, confidence, and action plans to be effective leaders.

 “Great leadership is grounded in respect and the ability to inspire. In the week ahead these young leaders will uncover the greatness within themselves and their own unique leadership style.”

The 250 delegates graduated having completed various stages of the leadership programme.
