Rutland Area Youth Service: Board of Directors

Rutland Area Youth Service (RAYS) – Recruitment of New Board of Directors

ASP (Adventure Sports Project), LYCS (Lourdes Youth & Community Service) and Belvedere Youth Project (BYC) have been providing youth services for more than three decades in north east inner city Dublin. In that time, they have worked with thousands of young people and have built up positive relationships within the community. CDYSB (City of Dublin Youth Services Board) are working with the three organisations to develop a new stand-alone youth service which will see ASP , the youth work element of LYCS and the one youth work post, funded by UBU in BYC, merge to form a new entity that will bring together and strengthen the existing good practice in relation to vision, methodologies, governance, compliance, programme design, delivery and evaluation for and on behalf of young people aged 10-24 years with a complexity of needs.

Currently the name of the new youth service is the ‘Rutland Area Youth Service (RAYS)’, although the name of the new service will change and formally agreed by all stakeholders. This new stand-alone youth service will be located in a new purpose built community hub in the refurbished Rutland Street School in the next few years. In the meantime, the new service will operate as a multi site operation with multiple partners in order to continue to deliver the services to young people in the area. In summary the new entity, with an address in Rutland St, will provide services from 2 facilities from Rutland St, 1 from James Joyce St, in close co-operation with community partners in LYCS and BYC.

We are recruiting for a new Board of Directors who oversee the further development of the new entity. We have a number of positions on the voluntary Board available. Please download the attached recruitment booklet for more information.
