Youth Information Centres (YICs)

This Scheme is administered by LWETB on behalf of the Youth Affairs Section of the Department of Children and Youth Affairs. Youth Information Centres (YICs) provide a free, confidential information service to young people and those who work with them on a wide range of subjects including careers, education, employment matters, rights and entitlements, leisure, sport, travel and European opportunities. YICs are a first point of contact for a young person seeking information on any subject of interest or concern. Trained and friendly staff are available to help find or interpret the information required. These staff work in close co-operation with other relevant voluntary and statutory agencies and will refer young people to them when further information or specialist help is required. More information on Athlone YIC can be found at
