                It is mandatory in Ireland for all persons who want to learn to drive to complete essential driver training lessons. The purpose of these lessons is to save lives.

Many rural youths need this skill in order to access employment opportunities.

It enables them to step outside their comfort zones and create their life plans by instilling confidence and self-belief in their own unique abilities to transform their lives. By participating in this workshop, these young people have the confidence to set goals, not limits, which will allow them to create and seize development opportunities on both a community and personal level.


                    Through the StayOn project participants receive on average 4 individual coaching hours. Coaches offer support to participants to make a change, learn something new and/or achieve their goals. The essence of coaching is not giving answers to participants, but rather helping them find answers on their own. Coaches in the StayOn project lead participants through the process of trainings & community involvement, help them identify their potential and support them in overcoming obstacles on the way to their empowerment.
                    The main goal of the coaching in the context of StayOn is to help participants prepare their development plan. Coaches in the StayOn project receive individual and group support to lead participants through the process.
