Mason Hayes & Curran Partners with Young Social Innovators
24 February 2015
We are pleased to announce our partnership with Young Social Innovators, Ireland's largest social innovation and active citizenship education programme for young people.
Announcing the sponsorship, YSI’s Partnership Development Manager, Pat Edmondson said, “We are delighted that Mason Hayes & Curran, as part of its CSR strategy, has decided to support Young Social Innovators in its mission to fire young peoples’ passion to change the world for good. The empowerment of young people and creating the opportunities for them to engage in addressing social problems in real and creative ways is what we do. This support will enable us to facilitate even more young people in our programmes, workshops and events which can only be good news for the communities throughout Ireland that benefit from their innovative ideas and action.”
Ian O’Herlihy, Partner and Head of our Education Team, said, “Education forms the central plank of our CSR strategy and the activities and learning opportunities which Young Social Innovators provide to students in Ireland fits perfectly with our ethos so we are delighted to support them in 2015. It’s great to see how many of their past projects have had a positive impact on our society and we look forward to seeing what these eager young minds will achieve in the future.”
As part of our involvement with YSI we are also sponsoring the Making Our World Fair & Just Award which will be presented at the Young Social Innovators of the Year 2015 Awards and Showcase in Citywest Hotel and Convention Centre on 6th May. We are joining the YSI Companies for Social Innovation Network which includes the NTR Foundation, Sierra Support Services, AbbVie Limited and the Vodafone Ireland Foundation.
