In March 2012 we ran the biggest workshop to date in collaboration with Intel and the Lions Club in Tullamore. Almost 200 students where brought together to participate in a great workshop focused on improving teenage healthcare in Ireland (there are big problems regarding both physical and mental health among teenagers in Ireland).
Prior to the workshop we trained 25 Lions Club members from all over Ireland to become future facilitators of the program. These newly trained facilitators also participated in the workshop as team-coaches to get a hands-on experience with the materials. The newly certified trainers will now bring the program around Ireland through the Lion Clubs network.
As a next step we are working on a partnership to help other Lion Clubs from around the world adopt the program and thereby reach hundreds of thousands of other students.
