Youth Outreach

RETREATS

An Tobar Nua has been working with Irish secondary schools (equivalent to US grades 7-12) for over ten years through day retreats hosted at An Tobar Nua and in secondary schools around the country.

Through the use of video, music, games, guided reflection, and personal stories, our team helps students explore themes such as Romance Without Regret, Life to the Full, Friendship with God, Bullying, Social Media, The Price of Pornography, Why Jesus, and Positive Mental Health. Curriculum is updated annually to address popular issues affecting today's students.

Our aim is to interact with students on topics that are highly relevant and responsive to the challenges and pressures that youth are dealing with daily.

Faith Alive

Every week, An Tobar Nua provides a space for secondary school students to meet together as a youth club. Students are able to encounter their faith in new ways through music, games, Scripture discussions, and Christian community.

Summer Camp

During the summer, An Tobar Nua offers day camps for secondary school students packed with activities, fun, games, talks on faith, and worship. Students look at the relevance of a faith filled life in a modern world. The camp speakers present from a Christian worldview, but encourage students to share their opinions and respect each other’s views.

Day camp for primary school students (equivalent to US elementary school) combines games and activities with age-appropriate discussions about faith and positive lifestyle choices.
