Cavan and Monaghan Education and Training Board celebrates PRIDE
Chief Executive of Cavan and Monaghan Education and Training Board, John Kearney, demonstrated CMETBs solidarity with the LGBTI community of Cavan and Monaghan by flying the LGBTI flag outside of their Administrative Offices in Monaghan Town.
Joined by Paul Bardin of Cavan and Monaghan Rainbow Youth (CAMRY), Youth Development Officer Maureen McIntyre and Sharon Casey, LGBTi Volunteer – CMETB say they are delighted to be part of promoting June as PRIDE Month.
CMETB Youth Work Function has annually supported the development and provision of LGBTi Supports for young people aged 10 years to 24 years through The LGBTI+ Youth Service Scheme and the Local Youth club Grant Scheme. Both schemes support young people who identify as LGBTI+ and funding administered by CMETB aims to increase Youth Services supports and contact hours for one-to-one and group support to afford young people a fun and safe environment where they are visible, valued and accepted in line with the LGBTI+ National Youth Strategy and CMETB Youth Work Plan.
One of our LGBTi Grant recipients, Cavan and Monaghan Rainbow Youth – CAMRY, are a dedicated LGBTi service for young people in Cavan and Monaghan and they provide a range of professional supports to both young people and parents.
One of their new initiatives is the development of a Trans specific service that provide Trans specific supports for young people and their work is guided and supported by a mental health professional.
