TechSpace logo

Google.org, the charitable arm of Google, has provided a €530,000 (US$618,801) grant to Irish NGO Camara Education to double the number of TechSpaces in Irish youth clubs. The TechSpace Network, jointly run by Camara and Foroige, an Irish youth organization, aims to change the lives of young people in Ireland by becoming Ireland's leading creative technology network for outcome-focused youth development.

The grant will be used to enhance computer science training and provide equipment and ongoing support to youth workers and project managers in dozens of Foroige youth groups. Youth workers will also be offered a scholarship to complete a Level 8 National University of Ireland certificate in digital creativity in youth settings, which will include a module in computer science education.
