Extra Information

The IM HAPPY project (IMproving Hopes, Aspirations, Prospects and Potential in the Youth) seeks to promote achievement as a means of improving the self-esteem, self-belief and self-confidence to students aged 9 and over in the Neighbourhood Renewal (NR) areas of Coleraine. The team currently teaches free ICT courses in two different regions of Coleraine – Coleraine Churchlands (Killowen and Heights) and Coleraine East (Ballysally and Millburn).
