Youth Alpine Initiative 2015

If you are between 16 and 19 years of age and have a passion for the outdoors, you have the chance to become part of this exciting initiative which aims enable 50 young people to prepare and then partake in a trip to the Swiss Alps.

Lots of good work is happening in many clubs and other organisations helping to introduce young people to our sport. Mountaineering Ireland is eager to support young people to make the next step from the Irish mountain environment to the Alpine environment.

Over the coming month, Mountaineering Ireland will ‘recruit’ 50 young people into two development pathways and provide them with a series of development days and mentoring, which will prepare them to participate with confidence at Mountaineering Ireland’s Summer Alpine Meet 2015.
