Michaela Foundation?… what’s that?
INSPIRE, EDUCATE, SUPPORT
Michaela Foundation is inspired by the life of Michaela McAreavey. It offers young people throughout Ireland the chance to live its ‘Life Without Limits’ ethos by offering many programmes tailored to establish a happy,confident, faith filled life!
But what does Michaela Foundation do?
Michaela Foundation believes that the values which Michaela lived her life should live on, and that young people can succeed in life fulfillment and happiness with faith, confidence and fun as their foundation.
Since its inception, Michaela Foundation has strategically planned how they can inspire and encourage young people in Ireland to reach these values, and have already initiated two flagship programmes to achieve this.
Student Award Scheme
Michaela Foundation annually awards fresher students with awards in Irish, Religious Education and General discipline, £1,000 each to assist with university fees. After carefully selecting worthy applicants, who we deem ‘Michaela Scholar’s’, the student awardees began writing a monthly blog, ‘View from the Student’. The blog allows the students to share their experience in their first year in university, from social scene to exam pressures.
Michaela Girls Summer Camps
Michaela Girls Summer Camps bring a little bit of magic into the lives of seventy young girls across many counties…
The Summer Camps offer 11 to 13 year-old girls the opportunity to experience a plethora of inspiring and entertaining activities, all taught by highly-experienced experts in a fun and supportive environment.
Sessions at the camp are divided into five core elements Fun, Fashion, Faith, Irish and Well-being.
Activities include, new fashion styles, cupcake design, making rose bath bombs, healthy eating, Irish singing, understanding the rosary and a lot more! There was so much happening in this camp, only those who attended truly appreciated the ‘The Michaela Girls Camp experience!’
Bigger, Better and a whole lot more!
The Student Award Scheme will continue to run on an annual basis, giving 3 fresher students the chance to become Michaela Scholar’s each year and aid their university fees.
The Michaela Girls Camp will be rolled out in different counties throughout Ireland, giving young girls aged 11-13 the chance to experience something truly magical!
