The Sligo Leitrim Home Youth Liaison Service (HYLS) is a non-profit organisation based in counties Sligo, Leitrim, and West Cavan regions. The service was established in 1989 in response to local needs to support young people.
The service was initially developed from the recognition that increasing numbers of young people were potential early school leavers and not accessing any alternative educational training opportunities.
This trend would likely have a negative impact on the young person’s future potential, family relationships and society in general. The HYLS was established to support young people to complete their full school cycle or to access alternative training options and remain within their own communities.
