Our Programmes

Working in partnership with Government and local communities, ELI has developed a range of innovative programmes to improve the educational aspirations and outcomes of children and young people. It has grown from 400 participants (children, parents and professionals) to 14,000+ a year and moved beyond its initial Dublin Docklands catchment area to supporting other communities across the country.
