The Clontarf program has shifted focus in the last two weeks towards supporting the young men with regular phone check-ins, learning support and engagement via a ‘Clontarf Home Challenge’.

The boys are awarded points for sending photos of completed school-work and videos of a bi-weekly competition. This week the challenges have been (1) Sport: 60 seconds of push ups, and (2) Wellbeing: prepare a healthy home cooked meal.

The idea is to continue delivering the Clontarf pillars in a healthy, interactive, and enjoyable manner. The Clontarf pillars include: Sport, Education, Leadership, Wellbeing, and Employment.

These are hugely challenging times for both parents and children in the household. We are encouraging the boys’ involvement in the home activities as way to connect with parents/guardians and to have a short, healthy break from screen time each day.
