Leanne joined Solas Project in 2018 as part of the Solas@School Programme. She coordinates the Solas Business, Solas College, Solas Sports, and Solas Equip programmes in primary and secondary schools throughout Dublin 8 and other parts of the city centre.
As a Dublin 8 native herself, Leanne spent her early years in the Nicholas Street flats. She took an unconventional route through the education system and is in the unique position of relating well to the young people in her programmes. As a youth cultivator, she “plants the seed” of interest in education with children from a very young age. She values equality of opportunity and identifies strongly with the Solas Project vision.
Leanne holds an HND in Social Studies and completed further studies in the areas of Addiction, Youth Health, and Counselling.
When she is not in work co-ordinating programmes for the 500 children of the Solas@School programmes, she can be found at home co-ordinating her own two children, Maggie and Tommie. Leanne’s happiest place is at home in Ballyfermot with a full house of her favourite people and her pet Labrador, Bell.
