What is Y-PATH PE 4 ME?
Y-PATH (Youth Physical Activity Towards Health) PE 4 ME is a junior cycle post-primary programme which aims to improve physical activity among children and young people through the physical education (PE) module in the school curriculum. The programme is bought to you as a result of a collaboration between the Irish Heart Foundation and Dublin City University.

What is involved in the programme?
The programme is available only to PE teachers. There are two parts to the Y-PATH PE 4 ME programme:
·       A 1-hour online course on the Irish Heart Foundation website www.irishheart.ie which must be completed by teacher before attending the workshop
-      3-hour face to face evening workshop held in Education Centres nationally 
Teachers will then have the ability to implement the Y-PATH PE 4 ME programme into their PE classes. Teachers will be given a Y-PATH resource pack with lesson plans, posters, student journals, as well as access to an online teacher’s portal containing digital resources to assist with lessons.

engageThe aim of this full-day workshop is to explore how teachers can effectively support young men to mind their mental health and wellbeing. The focus of the workshop is on creating a supportive environment across the whole school by exploring the world of young men, the issues that they face, and the opportunities that exist to engage with them.  Teachers get an opportunity to reflect on their own value base, experience, attitudes towards and expectations of young men.  Finally, there is time to explore what works. 

The workshop is open to any post primary teacher or school staff member. It may be of particular interest to:

-        Home School Liaison Officers
-        Members of the Student Support Team/School Chaplaincy
-        Teachers with responsibility for extra-curricular activities/links to community organisations
