The Solas Project is a charity based in South Inner City Dublin with a vision to see an Ireland where all children and young people truly know their self-worth and can take full advantage of their potential.

They provide a range of innovative interventions that equip and empower young people to reach their full potential, live life to the full and participate fully in society.

They place a high value on character and resilience. Through programmes of learning, mentoring, personal and social development, they support young people to create a brighter future for themselves and their communities.

They work to address the imbalances that contribute to certain children and young people in Ireland growing up at a socio-economic and/or educational disadvantage.


We at Francis St CBS work very closely with the Solas Project, and with their Dragons Den and The Yard projects.
