Now in its second year, the #YouthEmpowered programme seeks to support those aged 18-30 across Ireland and Northern Ireland who are not in education, employment or training with the skills and confidence to aim high and make their goals a reality.

Launched by #YouthEmpowered Ambassador, Eurovision and Fair City star, Ryan O’Shaughnessy, the programme sees the introduction of the new Digital Hub, offering e-learning courses in financial literacy, time management, project management, business, negotiation and sales skills. Young people can also embark on self-development courses, discover what career is the best fit for their personality, engage with mentors and learn more about relationship and communication skills.

As a young person who has worked hard and persevered for success, Ryan O’Shaughnessy said: “I know how many people struggle to find their first job, get their foot in the door or continue in education so it’s really important that people are given the support they need to get on the right track. I would call on recent school-leavers, job-seekers or any young person in Wicklow looking to reach their goals to join me in registering for the #YouthEmpowered Digital Hub.”

 Youth Empowered ambassadors from across Ireland will contribute advice for young people and share their stories of creativity, adaptability and perseverance throughout the campaign. Keep an eye out on https://www.facebook.com/CocacolaHBCIOI/
