LYCS is seeking a new Chairperson

LYCS is seeking to recruit a new Chairperson to drive our community focussed objectives and the development and launch of our new building. The Chairperson’s role is to lead the organisation and plan and facilitate board committee meetings. The Board is responsible for planning for succession at director level and we are now seeking expressions of interest in being a director of the Company and Chairperson of the Board.

The Chairperson will be selected so as to create a diverse Board membership that includes men and woman of independent mind. The role is an unpaid voluntary position.

Lourdes Youth and Community Services (LYCS)

With the refurbishment of the 100 year old heritage building, Rutland Street School well underway, this is an exciting time to be an integral part of the recreation and on-going development of LYCS, an integrated community based education, training, recreation and development project, based in Dublin's North City Centre. Our ‘cradle to grave’ provision endeavours to create an equality of opportunity for all our neighbours by providing high quality affordable childcare to support relevant educational programmes leading to positive futures characterised by choice. We provide the following services: Childcare; Youth Work; Community Training Centre; Adult Education; Development Education and Community Employment Scheme.

As the foremost provider of community based education and training services in our community our programmes are needs and evidence based and are continually reviewed and evaluated to ensure the best possible provision in Dublin’s north east inner city.

We envision a time where no person in our community is left behind, when aspirations are high and our community has excellent services and humanising employment. We work to ensure this future by providing opportunities for the oldest, the youngest, newest and most vulnerable people in our community.

  1. Expressions of interests which are now being sought will be treated in strictest confidence.
  2. The Board will review expressions of interest that are received and on the basis of that review will invite a number of people to discuss their interest in becoming the Chairperson.
