The YSI Local Leaders

Our Local Leader Team is on the ground throughout Ireland helping to introduce social innovation to schools, organisations, education bodies, local community organisations and businesses on a massive scale. They are supporting schools, teachers and students to collaborate and work together to understand social change and innovation so that they can address local needs. Our local leaders are building support networks comprising local government, businesses and community organisations, to support social innovations which are driven by young people around the country.
