The SCOOP Foundation, which stands for ‘Supporting Children Out Of Poverty’, was set up in 2009 by Irish brothers Andy and Calvin Sweeney. Operating in the Middle East and at home here in Ireland, SCOOP believes in supporting and educating the next generation, especially young people at home and abroad who are suffering through no fault of their own.

Currently, our main efforts at SCOOP are focused around the implementation of SCOOP Ed to young displaced people living in camps in Iraq & Syria, and young refugees living in Direct Provision Centres in Ireland.

SCOOP is now seeking a Project Coordinator for a 6 month Maternity Cover contract to take the lead on our Generation Change Programme.

Generation Change is a fundraising and networking initiative for Ireland’s undergrads created by SCOOP Foundation. Bringing together students and industry professionals, Generation Change raises funds to support SCOOP’s educational projects for displaced young people, nationally and internationally, all whilst providing the participants with invaluable benefits!
