Description:

The Girls Outside project is designed to introduce and increase the number of young women and teenage girls participating in outdoor activities, primarily walking and climbing in the Kerry region. The project will work in partnership with Mountaineering Ireland staff and experienced volunteers, outdoor adventure centres and with relevant local agencies including Kerry Recreation & Sports Partnership, schools and community organisations.A key aspect of this project is that a variety of diverse, fun and exciting approaches will be applied in order to motivate and interest the girls and women to get involved in walking and climbing. Current membership of Mountaineering Ireland reflects an equal gender balance. Mountaineering Irelands current development plan has identified the need to increase participation of under-represented sectors and to facilitate greater youth involvement in mountaineering activities.Mountaineering Ireland has secured funding for an innovative project entitled “Girls Outside” under the Women in Sport initiative. It proposes to operate this project in conjunction with local agencies, schools and community groups to provide an activity programme targeting girls and young women in post primary schools, post leaving certificate courses and community settings.
