To mark the week, the youth committee in the Foróige Drum Youth Centre have organised a number of activities to highlight the importance of this issue to young people. These activities will take place during youth café on Tuesday and Thursday for third to sixth years from 4.15pm-6.15pm.

A ‘masquerade’ will take place, involving making paper-maché masks and decorating them. There will also be a poetry and short story competition with music, snacks and a prize giving.
