Who We Are The important element of the youth information service is that it acts as a first point of contact for a young person; it will identify where help can be found and will support the young person in availing of that help.
Youth information is an educational process which aims to empower young people to make informed decisions and positive life choices. It is carried out through the provision of a person-centred service, which is: • accessible; • free; • generalist; • confidential; • non-directive; • non-judgmental; • non-political; • well publicised; • offers information through a variety of media; • engages in outreach work; • promotes personal autonomy; • works closely with other relevant agencies; • offers an attractive and welcoming environment; • provides access to resources; • develops information skills; • is staffed by specially trained workers; • also services those who work with young people.
What We Do Youth Information Centres are places for you to get information on a range of topics or to chat to someone in confidence. It is a place where you can come and ask whatever questions you may have and know that we will do all we can to help you.
The centre is aimed at all young people but people of other ages are welcome to call in! Centres are friendly and inclusive places open to all, with notice boards and leaflet displays of relevant information for you to take away. The Tralee Youth Information Centre offers free internet access. Youth Information is part of a health promoting organisation.
We use social networking websites to communicate with service users, and promote internet safety in accordance within ‘Safe Surfing Guidelines’ and ‘Safe Social Networking’ Guidelines.
