The Genesis Programme Officially Launches its Delivery of The Incredible Years® Programs to Children, Families and Communities in Dundalk and Drogheda, Ireland – March 2nd, 2015
In November 2013 the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs in Ireland announced a new initiative to support children and their families. The Genesis Programme was selected to participate in the Area Based Childhood (ABC) programme. Fifty proposals were submitted and in June 2014 The Genesis Programme (which has over 50 Partner Organizations) was selected. They will deliver the suite of Incredible Years Parent, Teacher and Child programs to children and families in the areas of entrenched disadvantage in Dundalk and Drogheda. They are using these programs to promote and enhance children’s social, emotional and cognitive wellbeing from pre-birth to six years of age.
The programme is officially launched by the current Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Dr. James Reilly TD on Monday March 2nd, 2015.
Wally Problem Solver sends them a video message from Seattle to congratulate them on being selected. This is helping Wally get over his sadness because of Seattle Seahawks recently losing the US Superbowl.
