Inspirational Youth of the West 2019

Inspirational Youth 2019

The Inspirational Youth of the West 2019 will spotlight the champion young people (18 and under) building a brighter West Belfast.

We also be saluting the mentors behind our youth with School Principals, Teachers, Classroom Assistants, Youth Leaders and Coaches.

We will bring centre-stage the up-and-coming leaders of tomorrow whose endeavour and commitment is a credit to our community. From every field of activity and from every corner of West Belfast, we’ll introduce you to awesome achievers who serve as proud ambassadors for West Belfast. Teenage troubadours and sporting starlets will line out alongside charity champions and vivacious volunteers in our fourth Inspirational Youth of the West 2019.

First, we are seeking nominations across 28 categories (nominate below) so we can draw up a shortlist of 3 outstanding contenders from each category. Second, our readers will then vote for the most inspirational. Finally, we will celebrate with a special brochure and gather for a celebration of our high achieving youth in THE DEVENISH COMPLEX hosted by Barra Best on Friday, 8th November 2019
