The Liberties Club (GYDP)

The Liberties Club (GYDP) is co-funded by the Irish Government and the European Social Fund as part of the ESF Programme for Employment, Inclusion and Learning 2014-2020.

The Liberties Club is a community-based youth project in the Liberties. We provide a range of services designed to enhance life skills and opportunities for young people in the area. Our programmes are youth-led and are designed in consultation with youth participants to meet their specific needs and interests. The Liberties Club also manages one of the National Garda Youth Diversion Projects, and this specific project strives to support young people in making positive choices in terms of their behaviour, decision-making skills, educational opportunities, and their lifestyle choices. Our catchment area is ‘The Liberties’ Dublin 8.

The Liberties Club believes that within all young people is greatness and that every young person should have the self-belief and resilience to fulfil their highest potential and to dare to dream.
