YWIT: 6th Class Transition Programme (online)


We here in Youth Work Ireland Tipperary would like to acknowledge the importance now more than ever of preparing for the transition from Primary to secondary school. We are now running 6th class transition programmes across all our projects. This will provide you with the opportunity to engage with your friends in a safe/fun way while discussing and addressing any hopes and fears you might have in relation to the transition to secondary school. We will have group activities, challenges, discussions and lots more. We will be using digital spaces such as zoom so we can talk to you and your friends as a group in a virtual world. The programme is based on the Next Step Programme and adapted to work in a virtual environment. It is divided up into three stages:

Stage 1: Online group 6th Class Transition programme, focused on Team building, Character development and building resilience. Stage 2: Summer Programme. Stage 3: First year Group.

This is a 6 week online programme that will cover:

  • Learning about each other, Group contract, Hope and Fears and Personal timeline
  • Facing Change and Challenges
  • Who’s in my network
  • Building Relationships/Friendships
  • Building resilience ( YWIT’s Snow White and the 7 Mental Health Helpers Programme)

This is an exciting new opportunity, we are looking forward to seeing you there and supporting you through this transition.

How to take part:

  • First step is to contact your own youth worker in your town by text, phone, messenger, etc.
  • Download zoom app to your phone
  • Youth worker will contact your parent for consent to participate in this process
  • Log in at the designated group time and have fun!

Guidelines for young people – please remember:

  • It is important to participate appropriately with this process
  • No Screenshots
  • Follow the group contract
  • Be respectful off participants
  • Please try and use a back drop while logged in on zoom staff will go through this with you.


Once you have decided you would like to continue to participate in group work with youth work Ireland Tipperary through this new medium, youth work staff will contact your parent to gain consent for this new process. All young people must have consent to participate in this programme


Group times will take place at times that suit young people and will be agreed upon by the group and also with consultation with parents due to the age of the young people taking part. Group will take approximately 1 hour in total.
