  • Title: About Citywise
    Descriptive info: Who we are.. Citywise is a not-for-profit organisation which was set up to run education, sporting and personal development programmes.. It began in 1991 in Dublin as a response to educational under-achievement of young people living in difficult city backgrounds and was formally established in 1994.. Over the past fifteen years it has gradually developed a range of supports for young people in Southhill, Limerick; in Ballymun, in Jobstown, in Ballynacargy, Westmeath and in Belfast.. Our Development.. In 2005, Citywise opened a 1,500 sq m purpose built education and outdoor centre in Jobstown to serve the education, social and personal development needs of young people, especially those in their teenage years in West Tallaght.. This achievement was the result of focussed hard work over a ten year period in the area.. Over 300 young people, ranging from highly alienated youth to local young people with third level aspirations, use the centre activities regularly, the limitation of their involvement impeded only by  ...   an independent company in West Tallaght to run this centre (The Durkan Centre).. There are also Citywise activities elsewhere.. Currently In Ballymun Citywise is working with the Plough Club in developing a new centre along the lines of that in West Tallaght.. In other areas (Belfast, Ballynacargy, Limerick) activities take place in rented premises and depend almost totally on volunteer input.. What we give.. Academic work is the focal point of Citywise programmes.. Young people learn to work hard, acquire study habits and develop their academic ambition.. Recognising the threat that drugs, gangs and crime present to a youngster’s future, Citywise gives importance to personal development.. Achievement cannot be separated from character.. Citywise emphasises the importance of character development, personal qualities and the need for each young person to serve society.. Students learn that there is always someone else who is more needy than themselves.. Families play a crucial role in a child’s education.. Citywise looks for a strong commitment from parents..

Young people living in disadvantaged communities who are out of school for any appreciable length of time are highly likely to become involved in anti-social behaviour or criminal behaviour, and to further alienate themselves from normal society.. Midschool aims to break the spiral of disaffection in the lives of such young people through the provision of formal support, built around the need for education, for those young people who are not easily integrated into the school system.. To this end, it provides full-time educational support to non-schoolgoers throughout the academic year, seeking to raise their.. educational and personal standards and, where feasible, reintegrate them into the formal education system.. In general, this means providing an as near to possible full-time school experience, together with personal and social supports, bearing in mind the circumstances of those enrolled and  ...   the possibility of returning to formal school, to reduce involvement of non-schoolgoers in risk behaviours and in anti-social activity and to help raise levels of employability.. provide advice and support and ongoing help so that the young person can take the next vocational or educational step with confidence..

  • Title: Aims & Objectives
    Descriptive info: Aims And Objectives.. Citywise Education is a voluntary organisation providing educational support to young people living in disadvantaged community environments.. Recognising the lead role of schools in cognitive learning, Citywise Education supports that work while paying attention to other aspects of education including the emotional, social and personal development of the whole person.. The following strategies currently underpin and shape Citywise Education's work.. Citywise Education programmes operate in recognised areas of high disadvantage of West Tallaght and are open to all young people in the area.. Citywise Education recognises the under-provision of support for young people, especially those in adolescent years.. It directs it resources to boys and girls aged ten years and over with a view to maintaining ongoing contact with these youth at least until they access employment.. Appreciating the negative societal impact of disaffected young males and their capacity for at-risk behaviours, Citywise Education seeks to direct increasing resources to this group.. In particular, Citywise Midschool programmes are targeted at young school non-attenders and seek to help them develop emotional literacy, social skills, including values development, and educational skills necessary to take control of their lives within society.. In order to emphasise the importance of schooling, all Citywise Education programmes contain an academic content.. Citywise Education also places emphasis on developing sporting and outdoor interests among its members.. The Midschool and Fast Track programmes have a strong educational  ...   the attention given to the social and moral development of all participants.. Citywise Education accepts that professional endeavours to change behaviour of young people in difficult environments can suffer from being too transitory.. It therefore places emphasis on:.. maintaining a person s involvement in a programme over time.. establishing peer support groups among those enrolled.. leaders / staff establishing positive relationships with the young people enrolled.. year round contact with young people.. introducing leaders from outside the community who can empathise with youth in their care.. growing local leaders within the community.. encouraging members to take more responsibility for the programmes in which they participate.. Citywise Education recognises the primary role of parents in the upbringing of children and through ongoing communication seeks to assist them in that task.. Citywise works in collaboration with other agencies (especially schools) in seeking to address the needs of children.. The general under-resourcing of Citywise Education programmes puts extra pressure on staff and volunteers alike.. Insofar as this may negatively affects co-operative work with other agencies, Citywise Education will give primary attention to interaction with local schools.. Citywise Education members should not perceive themselves as being recipients of charity nor see Citywise Education in a negative light.. Citywise staff and volunteers simply share with others the fruits of their educational gains.. All Citywise Education members are asked to pay a nominal fee to attend programmes..
