Young Social Innovators

Every year in March, Young Social Innovators takes to the road to hear thousands of young people speak out on the issues they care about during the YSI Speak Out Tour. At these exciting and high energy events hosted in locations nationwide, YSI teams come together in their regions to present their social innovation projects, advocate on the issues they are tackling and share their innovative ideas for change.

These events provide an important platform for young people to be heard, many of whom will be presenting on stage for the first time. Students are given 2 minutes to creatively communicate their issue of concern, why they feel it is important, what change they would like to see and the creative actions they have taken to bring about such change in their communities.

Our students represented CCS so well yesterday in Kilkenny their passion was evident on stage. A panel of five judges were present, we have to wait until after Easter to receive our results. Well done to all involved, special mention to our two narrators Aoife O’Donnell and Izabele Celnaite who worked tirelessly last week preparing for this event.
