FIT & Microsoft Youth2work Collaboration with GAA

Youth2Work is an initiative created by Microsoft and FIT to inform and equip 10,000 young people with technology skills which are in demand by employers all across Ireland. With an investment of €3m from Microsoft, the programme is ahead of its targets with 7,800 young people either trained, in further education, employment or in training right now after the first two years.

Moving into year three, Microsoft and FIT have an ambition to grow the programme and reach even more than the planned 10,000 young participants. With this in mind, the GAA has come on board as a partner with Microsoft and FIT to help introduce Youth2Work to local communities in Cavan and Monaghan.
