The Finglas Youth Resource Centre strives to empower young people by providing them with opportunities to learn and grow and become positive active citizens in their own community.

The Finglas Youth Resource Centre is a centre where young people are heard, valued and supported in reaching their full potential.

The Finglas Youth Resource Centre (FYRC) provide a range of developmental, social and recreational support programmes of youth work activities to young people aged ten to twenty-four while those considered to be at risk are prioritized. FYRC is a well-established youth organisation within the Finglas Community, which is housed in a purpose-built building for young people since 2004. FYRC supports the holistic development of these young people in the context of the family and the community. FYRC is committed to ensuring all local young people experience equal opportunities to
access our service and participate in programmes offered by the Centre. Some specific and notable services we offer include a six day/night a week service, service provision during holiday periods, provision of food and the absolute commitment to be fully accessible to all young people. We are accessible to young people living in Finglas; however, we have also practiced our youth work on a national and international platform through training's, conferences, European Solidarity Corp and Youth Exchanges over the last 6 years.
