Letterkenny Youth Information Centre provide a free, confidential information service to young people and those who work with them. The centre managed by Donegal Youth Service is the only one of its kind in Donegal and it operates a one stop shop approach where all the information is available under the one roof. We also support parents seeking information and support for their children.
The youth information centre exists to help and support young people on both a personal and group level. Through our work we have campaigned on youth related issues on a local and national basis, while also working to encourage and motivate young people to overcome barriers and achieve their goals in life.
