About Foroige - Southside
The purpose of Foroige is to enable young people to involve themselves consciously & actively in their own development and in the development of society. This purpose challengs and supports young people to involve themselves in developing their charactors and talents
Summertime can be a long and lonely experience for young people, particularly for those who may not have a large social circle or who may experience isolation, as a result of a learning or developmental need, such as Autism.
Foróige would like to offer young people an opportunity to participate in Pop Up Foróige Events over the summer time, to break an otherwise quiet and isolating few months.

Your role as a Foróige Leader in these Pop Up Events, will be to work with the Foróige Staff Officer, to help in the arrangements of the chosen theme of the Pop Up Event, to create a fun and pleasant atmosphere for participants and to ensure each Pop Up Event runs smoothly!
