ESTABLISHMENT OF CLONMEL YOUTH TRAINING
Clonmel Youth Training Entreprises Limited was established in 1984 by voluntary and business people, who saw the need to tackle the growing issue of unemployment and the related consequences of early school leavers in Clonmel.
Today the primary objective of helping young people to become mature, confident and competent young adults, ready for the world of work, still holds true.
