MAIREAD HEALY | Future Voices
Mairead is the founder of Future Voices, a programme empowering disadvantaged and marginalised young people to pursue third level education.
Working in the lowest performing DEIS schools in Dublin, Future Voices builds self esteem. Students learn about their rights and receive coaching on public speaking, policy research and community projects.
Future Voices now has enrolled over 100 young people in a 3-year Transformation Programme. 2015 saw the launch of their Youth:Elect campaign, which empowers people under the age of 30 from marginalised backgrounds to run for political office.
