Foróige is the leading youth organization in Ireland and has been working with young people since 1952. Their purpose is to enable young people to involve themselves consciously and actively in their development and in the development of society. Foróige in New York is based on the Irish framework and aims to create a similar safe space and opportunity for young people to interact with their peers, make new and meaningful memories in their area! We currently have 2 branches of Foróige in New York – Rockland and Yonkers. This year, we have close to 100 members between the two clubs, and we hope to grow and develop our program more each year!
In Foróige Yonkers, every year and every week is different! In our activities, we try to encompass and incorporate community development, physical activity, social interaction, self-esteem building, anti-bullying education as well as encouraging their individuality through arts, crafts, music, dance and other forms of self-expression. There are multiple outings and trips throughout the year too, which allows the young people to make new and meaningful memories with their peers. We are also in communication with Rockland Foróige to collaborate and coordinate some shared activities and trips each year.
Please email email@example.com or call the Aisling Center directly (914)-237-5121 for questions regarding the Yonkers Club.
