SDCU is delighted to be part of Junior Achievement Ireland. Junior Achievement Ireland encourages young people to remain in education and helps them develop the skills they need to succeed in a changing world. Junior Achievement is part of a worldwide organisation reaching out to 9.3 million young people each year. It was established in Ireland in 1995 and since then has built up a strong demand from schools throughout the country and created successful partnerships with over 180 leading organisations.
SDCU volunteers staff to help deliver programmes in local schools. Most recently 4 staff delivered 3 programmes in the Mercy Secondary School. In doing so our staff helped motivate and inspire over 125 students. And likewise those students helped motivate and inspire our staff.
We are very proud of our relationship with JAI and will be delivering further programmes in 2015/16.
