Project Description

Anna McCaffrey

Age 15, Northern Ireland

I think it is so important to get young people, especially girls, involved with sports and volunteering but there is not much funding for my local clubs. The strong volunteering ethos in my local Gaelic sports club inspired me to take social action. Since I was 13 I have mentored and managed younger girls playing sports and help run two shops at my club. I also coach camogie at my school and encourage other girls to start sport and volunteering.

Social action has taught me how to listen, work with people of different ages, and lead younger children.
