To say it has been a busy week at Solas Project is no understatement, we've enjoyed every minute!
Celebrating volunteers wrapped up today with some great Linkedin volunteers who came to paint our front wall and get it ready for an exciting project. Thanks so much to you all!
The big event of the week of course was our Solas Business Community Final!
Solas Business is part of our Solas@school initiative - working to support young people in their transition from Primary to Secondary school. It was so exciting as over 190 young people gathered in St Catherines Church, Thomas St to hear the 9 schools present their business idea. Representatives from the 9 participating corporates; Google, Boys & Girls, Quantcast, Mainstream, Goodbody Stockbrokers, Byrne Wallace, Dunhumby, Savills & AWAC.
After some tough deliberations by our Dragons - the winners were announced to be: St Audeons National School with their app 'Bully Bug'. An app that will help young people who are struggling with bullying. The dragons saw great potential in it, as did we! Well done to all!
A huge thank you to all our corporate partners & schools. We couldn't run this programme without your support.
