THIS Summer two free Summer camps will be run in Limerick and Tipperary to empower the next generation of young entrepreneurs and innovators.
The HEA funded summer camps which are facilitated by Limerick Institute of Technology in partnership with Mary Immaculate College are designed to encourage and develop young people and their passion for innovation and creativity skills.
Speaking about the Empower summer camps, Gillian Barry, Head of Innovation and Enterprise at LIT, welcomes the collaboration between LIT and MIC and how it will enhance the skills of the youth.
“Every young person we work with has the potential to solve problems, to create, disrupt and impact our future in a positive way – to be the next generation of change makers. For that to be fully realised it needs to be nurtured and developed. To power that potential we have created this high quality, educational, activity based programme,
“Empower promises to be a week-long immersive, social and fun experience whilst also challenging the young people who sign up as they develop valuable skills as well as make friendships for life,” she said.
The camps are aimed at post primary school students and will take place on both the LIT and MIC campuses in Limerick and Thurles and include field trips as well.
The Limerick camps kicks off on June 17th and you can register at www.lit.ie/RDI/Empower.
